And I have only begun to pack. Anyway, this post is just to say that I probably won’t be making it back alive. I have a feeling I’m going to accidentally slip up and say something I shouldn’t while I’m there, as I have a tendency to do that sort of thing. My father asked me yesterday if I’d ever been to a communist country, and I replied that I hadn’t. Here’s hoping Megha will set me straight and keep me from causing any international crises.

Unsure when I’ll blog again, but I’ll keep you posted re: whether or not I’m alive via Twitter and Facebook. And if nobody has heard from me by June, assume the worst.
