Just made flight arrangements for staging. I will be leaving ROC at 11:50 am on July 22nd and arriving in Arlington, VA around 1:30. I was hoping for NYC, but Washington it is. The staging schedule looks pretty boring. There's a 4-hour lecture on the first day, followed by early morning vaccinations on the second. Thrilling. I leave for Pretoria at 5:40 pm on the 23rd. Very excited, a little nervous. I can't wait to meet my fellow volunteers. I've started reading some of their blogs, and they all sound like pretty interesting people. It looks like there will be a few married couples and retirees in my training group. Still wading through registration/insurance paperwork.
