Saying Goodbyes

Meghan and KimI said goodbye to all my Ottawa-based friends last night. Dave and I had a party at our house and invited most of the people we hang out with on a regular basis, some of whom know each other and some who don't. There were friends of mine from high school, friends from Ultimate, friends from EWB, friends from University, Dave's sister and brother in-law came from Belleville for the occasion and my brother and his fiancee made it as well. It was great to be able to see everyone before I leave on Monday. I think we had a peak of about 25 people in our house. There was lots of good food on hand (thanks Jenn for everything you brought!!). I had a great time - thanks all for coming out!

One week to go!

My flight is one week from today. I will leave from Ottawa around noon on January 8th, and arrive in La Paz at 6:30am on January 9th. It will be a long trip and I think I will be fairly exhausted by the time I get there!

This week will be busy with preparations and last minute purchases of things that I will need to bring with me. I don't have a lot of things left to do, but there are a number of small errands that I need to run, like going to the OHIP office to extend my coverage while I am out of the country. The big-ticket items have all been taken care of - I have my Visa, my airplane ticket and my vaccinations are all up-to-date.
