Short Notice

With a job like mine you’ve got to be one step away from having a bag packed. My goal this weekend was actually to unpack from our holiday travels. In the end I was packing instead. At around 5pm on Friday the possibility of me going to DRC came up as a possibility, and by 7pm I had a flight booked for Monday afternoon and schedule to get my visa and extra passport pages on Monday morning.

As luck has it, three years ago, nearly to the day, I managed to get a new passport and DRC visa on the morning of departure. I’ll be doing the repeat on Monday for a second set of extra passport pages. Luckily I have contacts within the DRC embassy, so I have no doubt that I’ll manage.

Hopefully I’ll have a chance to blog some from the field in the next couple of weeks.
