Well, the day has arrived and I head out to Abidjan and then to Grand Bassam tomorrow. I'm really excited to get going and take advantage of all the opportunities this experience has to offer. Of course, I will miss my family and friends a lot but I know some of you are coming (Foley, Goodwin, Robbie, Archie, the Society at large, Freer, Edwards, Rock, Dougall, Geoff, Gates(?)).
And, to be sure, Go Hawks!
