Dear Family (and a bit the Laurels),
Thank you for the packages. My picture is (humbly) proudly displayed in the mailroom!
I am sending this because I got my flight plans today which means the visa is good and I am not getting reassigned. (Everyone else going to Brazil will get their reassignment next Friday). I leave on Tuesday the 17th at 5:00 or so in the morning. I fly to Boston at 9:40 and then have a six hour layover before we take a seven hour flight to Cape Verde. I will be able to call during that time I think (the layover). I am super excited.
En eston unito animado porque em una semana e quatro dias, eu vou estar em Cabo Verde. Eu sei que ele vai ser muito deficil, sao Deus vai ajuda me.
I will still be able to email next Friday.
