We're Outa Here

Last One Out Turn Off the AC

Hannah, Noah and I leave Tuesday from Chicago O'Hare Airport at 4:45pm EDT. We'll be flying to Frankfort, Germany via Lufthansa Airlines, then on to Accra Ghana. We arrive in Accra Wednesday at 3:30pm local time, or 11:30amEDT.

Our weekend and Monday was spent organizing, returning, canceling, packing, and trying to avoid saying good bye to anyone. Of the three of us, I'm the most happy about going, Hannah the least and Noah somewhere in the middle. We've been talking about it a lot, and I think we are as ready as we can be for moving to another continent with only eight suitcases.
Meanwhile Renita is an ocean away making purchases and trying to get us set-up in our new home, while at the same time processing her tour of Liberia and Cote d'Ivoire. The house will be rather bare when we arrive, but we'll have beds and kitchen stuff. I'm looking forward to getting a lay of the land and joining Renita in finishing the job she started. Stay tuned; we'll send more images as we travel.

And here it is, waiting for us: our new home! And a new home it is. We'll be its first occupants, and it may be the nicest home we've ever enjoyed.
