this weekend Joe and I watched a documentary about the Lost boys of Sudan called "God Grew Tired of Us" and at the end one of the boys was leaving America and Going back to his friends and family in Africa, and he said, "This is the BEST - I am going to Africa!"
I haven't been able to get it out of my head. When I feel a little bit stressed about finances or plans in general - I just whisper to myself "this is the best..."
It's such a sweet reminder of how I actually feel when things are crazy around me.

We leave on March 8th!
Excited doesn't even begin to describe how I feel!
We still need to raise $1,300 in consistent monthly support for 2010. Please let me know if you want to donate towards Tukula! e-mail:

Also, we are on twitter now! So weird, but somewhat fun!
Thank you for reading this blog thing! Our official website will be up before March, hopefully. : )
