Basically the title says it all. My Darling, Kitty, left for Africa this past weekend while I was out on a vacation. I wish I could have been there to wish her good-bye…
But Hey! Africa isn’t that far, it could always be worse. In fact it’s not that bad at all! Think of the stories I’ll get to hear when she gets back!
But I miss her and its only been two days! Just knowing that she’s farther away then she has ever been makes me think of her all the more.
5/31 Edit: She called me today from a airport telephone. Seems to be the easiest way rather then paying massive long distance charges on a cell phone. We talked for a while, she told me that they have to wear rings to avoid being looked at as potential brides. There had been young men in turbans following their small group and the guides wanted to take precautions against suitors asking them if they were married. Haha! She said she would call me later this week if she could. Oh, Kitty, please come back soon.
