    Elizabeth Foy, Do you ever get the feeling that you are trying to prepare yourself for something that is totally and absolutely foreign. You will be fine! All

      Elizabeth Foy,
      Do you ever get the feeling that you are trying to
      prepare yourself for something that is totally and
      absolutely foreign.
      You will be fine! All will be good!! I admire you
      for trying to get a clue before you leave the States
      and to undertake, what very well could become the
      grand journey of your life. But rest assured that
      wondering about cats and dogs and roaches at this
      point is superfluous at best.
      Enjoy your friends and your family and the freedom
      that you have right now knowing that you are
      absolutely free, this may never happen again. What I
      mean when I say absolutely free is that you have a
      date when you are going to leave the world that you
      now exist in behind. You, your world, and your
      perception will never be the same again. At the same
      time with a definite departure date you have the
      freedom from worry of what to do next.
      I don't mean to sound condescending. My only hope for
      you is two fold. I hope that you revel in all that
      you have right now. I also hope you have as positive
      of experience as I did while I was in Malawi and that
      you come home with the friends, memories and a level
      of personal growth that I so richly enjoy.
      Take your camping stuff, bring music, bring a book. A
      journal is a must. Bring a sense of adventure, an
      understanding of right and wrong (from a western
      perspective), all the patients (x100) that you ever
      thought you could muster, and a huge smile.
      Hang on friends, here we go.
      I live through you vicariously,
      Matt McNulty
      RPCV Malawi 94-96

        Well, Matthew, aren't you inspired and inspirational tonight! Beautiful
        words. Elizabeth, I wish I was in your shoes, I'm glad I'm not, and
        sometimes I think I still am. Matt's advice is good. Best of luck! Lutani
