T - 13 Days

It's June 1st today, and we're in the final leg of preparations for Tanzania. Logan has been printing off photos to bring to his friends and host family from the last time he was in Tanzania (Fall 08). We wanted to start the blog early to discuss the preparations we've been going through to get ready for this.

We've been in contact with the villagers and drillers throughout the country. Logan's host family is expecting to see us as soon as we make it to Dar Es Salaam. We're really excited.

We've already gotten all of our shots for going over. Logan has one more in the rabies vaccination series to get, and I have to pick up a couple of prescriptions from the pharmacy. This time, when I went to the doctor to get my check up, I walked in, sat down, and my doctor looked at me and said: "Well, all we need to get you is malaria and cipro." It was the first time I've ever been all caught up on vaccinations for traveling overseas. It made me feel special because it means that I'm starting to move in the to the frequent traveler category.

Tomorrow, we'll post some pictures from the last time that Logan visited the village. Until then, here is our current itinerary, even though it is continually changed by the airlines:
