France and Benin 2005

Journal 8

Monday evening I went with my host dad to check my email, the first time since being here in Benin. I think it was good for me because I realized that I wasn’t really missing as much as I sometimes think. While writing my family and friends and describing the trip, I couldn’t believe how awesome everything was that I was writing. I have already been to 7 different countries, 2 continents, learned a lot of French, made 21 new friends (let alone the host families), taken bucket showers twice a day…etc. This trip is amazing. There is no way I want to go back to normal and often boring life right now. This is the stuff I dream about! -- Brad Graber
