Well, there will be some stop overs on the way… in Amsterdam and Johannesburg and Windhoek… but in 40 hours I’ll be there!
For those of you who don’t know, I am working on a project looking at surgical care in Angola and (after some persistence at trying to get the visa pictured above) I am finally on my way. While in Angola my posts may be limited but once I get to South Africa I plan to update about all the highlights. In total, I will be in-country for about two weeks. I initially arrive in Lubango where I will be greeted by my hosts and after a few days will travel to a bush hospital in Kalukembe. Following that, I head over to the capital city Luanda to (hopefully) conduct some more interviews with people involved with surgical education and at the Ministry of Health.
I just realized – having already left home – that I forgot my raincoat. Well… at least I have my passport (check), green card (check), and camera (check).
