Loitokitok Bound

So November 10th came around and my intrepid mother is finally off to Loitokitok, Kenya (near Mt. Kilimanjaro) with the Peace Corps.  I dropped her off at the @sscrack of dawn this morning.  Straight from LA to Kenya via Philly then Amsterdam.  It's almost like sending her off to military service with all the rules and regulations and packing restrictions.  At least they don't require a uniform or force volunteers to learn how to make wrinkle-less beds.  With the current economy, I can't blame anyone for taking a two-year guarantee.  I might consider public service, endoctrination, and eating beetles for that.  At any rate, I can't wait to visit her next year.
