At the end of my work term in Rwanda, I didn't have the chance to visit the Mountain Gorillas, which I had diligently saved up for, because the ministry that issued work permits held my passport until the Friday before I flew out of the country Saturday morning.

I was asked if I always dreamed of visiting every country in the world. Not at all! All just always thought I was meant to be my parents' retirement bank account. Had no idea what Life had in store for me!

Is THIS is how it feels to do whatever I want, whenever I want, wherever I want, however I want, without anyone else interfering? Yes, this is what bliss and total liberation feel like, darling.
