T-minus 2 hours..

T-minus 2 hours and leaving for the airport; just one last little whirlwind of controlled frenzy before I go!

Yesterday I found myself dreaming about how good the cafe' con leche and postres in Spain would taste and considering what sentences I might formulate to order them. I made a music playlist and imagined what song might play in a perfect moment while staring out a window watching the Atlas mountains pass in Morocco. An NPR podcast I listened to a few months ago reported on a study which showed that people anticipating vacation are just as satisfied as when they are actually experiencing it. I've read other research about the physiological responce of athletes just imagining peforming their sport; heart rate, blood pressure and adrenaline levels respond accordingly. This makes sense to me; the subtle smile I frequently noticed myself wearing yesterday is proof of the pleasure in anticipating good things.

I wish I could make this a more thorough first entry, but it's time to shower, brush my teeth and donn a pack...maybe entertain a few more moments of controlled frenzy! My heart is excited with anticipation of the new friends, serendipidous moments and insights I will gain taking this trip! Goodbye all...love you and see you soon! Besos!
