So now, in twelve days, I am headed to Dakar, Senegal for six months of study abroad.
I am more scared than I think I have ever been before.
While I am certainly no stranger to travel, I have never traveled for this length of time to a place so distant and strange to me. My french skills have seriously depleted over the summer, and it will be quite a shock to be taking classes all in french, including learning another language in french (Wolof).
This should be quite the trip
