On the horizon

I'm now starting to notice how my whole perspective on life in Scotland has a very definite horizon in mid-August. There's nothing beyond that, as we hope to fly out to Rwanda then. There's no question about it, even 5 months away, it colours everything.

Preparation for Rwanda is also taking up an increasing amonut of time. This week the big thing is buying air tickets. This is one of the most irreversible things we have done so far, not just because of the large amount of money, but because it is an action. To explain - we have been thinking and talking about Africa for a few years now, telling other people about it for a few months, but we are now in a new stage of taking actions to go to Rwanda specifically, not just Africa in general.
