Jetlaggin'

2 layovers, 6 airplane meals, 5 movies, 1 crying baby, and 30 hours later.....I made it! So happy to be here. Some dude named Wesley was supposed to pick me up but Ben surprised me instead with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. Will admit...I broke down:)

Our place is so POSH I love it. 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath, large family room, dish satellite plasma tv, awesome gym, nice pool, complimentary massages, maid service...I can live here. No a/c though...oh well. It hasn't been bad yet and it's summer so we should be good! Someone said it's a lot like San Francisco, just more humid. Which has been true so far.

I'm learning Zulu from our maid. "Sawubona" is "hello" and "Ngiyabonga" (pronounced "Yibona") is "Thank you." A couple words a day and I should be fluent in a few months.

Jet lagged. 9 hours ahead of you guys. Tired. Hungry. I've got some weird milk and canned beans in the fridge.

Interesting food. Crazy tv channels. Unreliable internet. I can get to gmail just fine. Can't click on anything in Facebook. Can't get into Youtube or Wikipedia. Can't upload anything. So just be patient aight!?

Stores close at 6. Don't really know what I'M going to do here yet...photograpy, teach, waitress, join a gang, become a bum, model...

Pictures coming soon (hopefully....)

Feel like I've been hit by a train.

It really is exciting folks.

Yay! Let the fun begin. I don't know if you want opinions, but I think you should definitely become a bum. It'd be awesome.
