I’m leaving tomorrow morning (today) — Tuesday — at 9:30 a.m. to Washington, D.C. I have been packing for many hours straight in this hot, humid NYC weather, with the help of oscillating fans, lemonade, and Rafael. Everything came down to the final minute. I am not a pre-packer. Had a few friends over tonight for an intimate goodbye. Whew… what a day. So bittersweet. So much love all around and I know I’ll come back to everyone. Next stop, D.C. for one night, then Dakar!
