…the other 50% head to Texas.
Yesterday was my last day at Habitat for Humanity International HQ in Atlanta, GA. Last night Alicia and I packed for Sri Lanka. We’ve been camping out in our apartment for about 2 weeks on an inflatable bed, eating on folding porch chairs, washing the same dishes over and over, and making meals out of frozen edamamme we’ve had in the back of the freezer for possibly 2 years (Alicia is a genius with random foods). We went to the airport together, and now I am sitting here waiting to board for Chicago, Abu Dahbi, then Colombo, Sri Lanka while Alicia is somewhere else in the airport getting on a plane to Texas.
Alicia still does not have her VISA, but we expect it to likely get to DC at the end of next week. She will then fly to DC, get her visa at the Sri Lankan embassy, and then fly to straight to Sri Lanka, with us only being apart for a 10 days. Worst case scenario: Alicia’s visa never comes, I live in Sri Lanka for the summer, and she fullfills her internship requirement in Bolivia or somewhere…hmmm. Please pray that Alicia gets her VISA soon. We just had a very sad goodbye. The emotion kinda surprised us both.
Otherwise, we are very excited. We will be staying with a young lady named “Ha” in an apartment 2 minutes from the beach. I will be chillin at the beach and exploring Colombo, Sri Lanka’s major city. I’ll try to post some pics when I get there.
