New Languages

So I'm leaving Saturday morning and am seriously nervous, but I just started trying to learn some Wolof, so I can at least look like I'm trying to speak the language. It's really exciting! It reminded me of one of the reasons I'm doing this-- I absolutely love learning languages. Anyone as easily excitable as me who wants to hear a little Wolof can check out this site: http://afroweb.chez.com/wolo_frm.htm.

My First Post

Hey all,
So I'm starting my blog now so I can give it to people in A2 before I leave. I will (hopefully) be a lot more active on this in Senegal. As things stand now, the plan is to leave A2 for Chicago December 17th and Chicago for Dakar, Senegal January 3rd. I'll keep you posted!
