Cortney left for Africa on Friday. She arrived on Saturday and made it safely! Whew. I was worried and still am.
Around 4 on Saturday I was just hanging around the house when my phone went off. It was showing someone was “chatting” with me on gmail. I opened the chat and it was Cortney telling me that she had made it safe and if I was by my computer. I hurried and grabbed my computer and signed onto Skype. We skyped for 2.5 hours! It was great and I think it made Cortney fell better. She was in a very scary hotel in Dar Es Salaam. I was the first one she was able to get a hold of so I called Tristan (her fiancé) and her parents! They were all very happy to hear from her. I tried to hold my phone to the computer so they could talk. After all the phone calls I know she was not going to sleep there so I stayed on Skype as long as I could. (She is 7 hours a head of me). We ended up watching the next episode of Life Unexpected (a TV show we watched then it got canceled and we are re-watching it :)). Here is the set up I had going on at home so we could watch together;
It was so good talking to her! I am glad she is having more fun now. She has moved out of Dar Es Salaam and is traveling around with Renalda waiting on her work permit to be finished!
I woke up to a G chat from her this morning! Thank goodness because I had not heard from her yesterday. (I was late to work because I was so concentrated on learning what she is doing, etc that it took me forever to get ready.) Plus, she kept saying “only 14 minutes left” so I knew we were on a time crunch. (Have to pay by minute for internet) She is much happy now which I am very thankful for!
Keep up with her; http://www.cortneytakesafrica.wordpress.com. I am thrilled because she is updating! Makes me very happy.
Enjoy your Monday. I am looking forward to my next chat/Skype with Cortney.
