So, ladies and gents, in exactly four and a half hours at the ungodly hour of 4:00 in the morning, I will be arriving at LAX to begin my journey on March of the Living 2008... I can't believe it!
I think it goes without saying that packing all my shit in ONE suitcase was a fucking O R D E A L... but I think I have managed to do it. I hope it zips. Seriously. (For those of you who are curious -- I bought sneakers (no WAY would I ever wear hiking boots) and have packed a small backpack, but also a leopard print Betsey Johnson tote, just in case!)
I am very excited but very nervous... every adult I run into says the exact same thing "We're so proud of you." That's so nice to hear, but at the same time, what are they proud of me for? I didn't do anything special... YET :) I feel lucky that I am able to be a part of this. I know it will change my life.
So, this is my last post on DFWF for the next two weeks. HOWEVER, as you may know, I am blogging this trip live everyday from Poland and Israel for the Federation, and this is how you will be able to read what we are doing and seeing everyday!

I will be able to recieve emails on my Blackberry, so please feel free to email me lots (firstname.lastname@example.org)! Have a great two weeks and I can't wait to share my experience with all of you when I come back!
