Final Countdown to Africa

The airport hhuttle called today to confirm our ride to the airport. 7:40 tomorrow night. G is packed. I still have a bit more to do but I'm almost done. To take two pairs of jeans or not? Hmmmm... We have tomorrow to wrap up everything. And rest for the journey.

There was a great quote in the Seattle Times today. A local reporter interviewed director Peter Weir for the release of a special collector's edition DVDs of his movies. Weir is one of my favorite directors. I loved his early movies like "Picnic at Hanging Rock" and he did a great job with "Master and Commander" They talked about his approach to filming "Witness". The scene between Kelly McGillis and Harrison Ford is one of the sexy scenes on film but no sex is shown. It is all about anticipation.

"And as is often the case in life, the anticipation is the greater experience."

This is also so true about travel. The anticipation period of our trip is almost over. It is time for us to actually experience our trip.
