Dad,

Thanks for the info. I will check it out later. Right now it still
feels too far away, however it is approaching quicker than I thought. I
have only 2 and a half weeks of classes left. So, its review from here on.
I feel stressed. I feel like they haven’t learned enough, but I guess
there is always more to be taught.

Patrick left yesterday. He will be doing business stuff around Malawi
for the next few weeks. I will not see him again at this lodge.

I have been doing some foot exploration here, just wandering.
I have lost my fear of the bush, and just yesterday I saw an
otter, bushbuck and a troop of baboons. I am so lucky to be surrounded
by all this wildlife. We really are going to have to do some camping
and visiting Estonian national parks when I am in Tallinn. Don’t get me
wrong, I am really looking forward to the city - eating out, having wine a
the wine attic, MOVIES!!!! But, still I want to travel some in Estonia.
Don’t you think it is time we see a bit more of the country? I have been
getting into bird watching (LOSER ALERT!) and I believe Estonia has some
large bird sanctuaries.

So, I am coming home in less then a month. I can’t wait to see you at
the airport! What time do I fly in again? I want stirfry for dinner
(something’s never change:)

Ok, I need to start class. I love you and miss you so much! My wall is
covered in pictures of Tallinn. I can’t wait to be around family again
(Did ya ever think I would say that?!) Being away and alone has really
made me appreciate all the love and affection you give me. I can’t wait
for a HUG!!! Its been four months no hug for me (these Brits really
must warm up:)

Ok, that’s all for now

All my love,
Shauna
