The bags are packed. Although I won't be on a train as the title of this blog might suggest, I will be heading South in a couple days ("Southbound Train" is the name of a song I enjoy). Those of you who pray, please do so for safe travels, a productive and enriching semester, and most of all for safe travels. My travels begin with a flight at 6:30 A.M. EDT this Wednesday and will conclude with an arrival in Belize around 2:00 P.M. EDT the same day.
It is not likely that I will have much access to the internet and the like for the first several days after my arrival in Belize. Therefore, do not anticipate "I'm here!" messages. I would not have very much to report besides that anyway.
If you would like to write me, and I hope that you do, please address your snail mail as follows:
c/o Creation Care Study Program
Santa Elena Post Office
Santa Elena, Cayo District
It will take around 10 days for your letters to reach me and a similar span of time for mine to reach you. If you send a package, keep in mind that I will not have much luggage space to carry things home that I didn't initially bring with me.
Commenting on these entires is allowed to everyone for the first 10 days after I post it. After that, you will need an account with Travellerspoint to comment. My entries should be less than 10 days apart (at least I hope), so you should be able to get a message to me almost all the time.
Above is the map showing the location of my future home for 4 months.
