So it's all over now and I'm free from the oppressive bonds of higher education. I finished up at Union on the sunny day of May 7th and after a week of traveling here and there and everywhere I ended up Mozambique. I'm spending a month with my family before leaving to work at BIG LAKE YOUTH CAMP. Pretty much the one of the coolest places ever. Oh, I just found out the other day that my friend and I got our spots at Heri hospital in Tanzania for this upcoming school year. Who knows what we'll be doing there but it should be pretty sweet.

As to what I've been doing recently. We spent a couple of days in a game park driving around looking for lions and and other cool African animals that live in game parks. I've watched lots of episodes of House:) Went to a church dedication on the beach today which was pretty cool. Tomorrow we're going with a volunteer group from Auburn, WA to South Africa to show them the "sites" or something like that.

I've been listening to people talking all kinds of languages recently: Portuguese, Spanish, English(surprising, I know), Shona, Zulu, and I've been looking/listening to Swahili online in preparation for next year. I've decided that some languages are really cool and others seem like they could have been done without. I think learning Swahili is going to be a lot of fun. The words sound cool and it's easy to read them even if I have no idea what I'm saying.

Well this is the end of another short epistle from the keys of Justin D. Woods. Tune in next time to read all about how the zebra got its stripes. If you actually have any ideas about that let me know cause I'm open to suggestions:)
