That’s supposed to be the dial tone. I used to hate that thing.
This is me sending this post in via email – which is how I’ll be posting on Semester at Sea.
Sorry. I had to freak out for a moment that this is ACTUALLY happening.
SAS gives us free email, but without any attachments. We’re given half an hour internet for the entire voyage (not a typo) and topping up is super expensive. So I’ll post lots of pictures once I’m back I promise, and whenever I manage to find free wifi in ports. Besides that, for the duration of the voyage I’ll have mostly text posts. Sorry everyone! I’ll have some scheduled posts – I think. At this rate I’m not going to have the time to schedule them!
There is so much still to do, and just a week til I leave the country. I have just two nights left at my childhood home with my family until I head back to Cape Town. One embassy requires a personal interview –gulp! I also need to register for the academic year before I leave, and give my elective feedback to my supervisor. And I think I’m forgetting some other to-do’s.
Oh, and pack. I must do that.
I’m so freaked out! And very excited.
And now there are only 90 minutes left of the year, and I want to spend it with the family. Happy New Year to you and yours!
