Coming to America*

The Route (the actual route has a few layovers, but you get the idea)

I’m hoping on a plane tomorrow and coming back to the states for a three-week whirlwind tour! Though initially against my travel philosophy (I’m in Africa, I should see Africa), I couldn’t pass up the the trifecta of two weddings and a pregnant sister with identical twin girls. And while it won’t be the most relaxing trip (Paris, 2 days -> Boston, 3 days -> DC, 3 days -> Seattle, 3 days -> San Francisco, 10 days), I am excited to see everyone back at home, plus a few sites on the way. I’m curious to see how this “reverse culture shock” thing will be.
While packing I realized that I don’t really have good clothes for America, so apologies in advance to those I will see (yes I’ll have a suit for the weddings, don’t worry brides). I don’t plan on blogging while I’m away, but I’ve set up an impressive number of automated posts to keep you all entertained, plus my colleague has even promised a guest post (in English no less).
* This great 80’s film starring Eddy Murphy is quite popular here in Burkina (Un prince à New York).

    Wow sounds really interesting. A whirlwind for sure. Though it’ll be busy I’m sure you’ll have some fun!
    Bon Voyage.
