And...Mohamed is in Accra right now and hasn't decided whether or not to continue to Monrovia on his epic Africa trip. Because of riots.
So instead of venting my frustration at the travel gods (no ticket or visa right now, and my presentation is Monday afternoon) I'm going to list the things that make me happy right now:
* seeing a grad school friend and her family in Kathmandu
* going to a new country
* official public recognition of my expert status
* getting tickets for Beertown, Pride and Prejudice, Romeo and Juliet, and the Annual Holiday Sing at the Atlas Theater. Then in 2012: Billy Elliot the Musical, Spamalot, and the Harlem Globetrotters.
