Ready or not?

Here I come! Getting ready to leave tomorrow morning for Johannesburg via Washington, DC and Dakar. Mildly panicked as I am keeping an eye on hurricane’s path, airport security updates and strike in South Africa, and trying to fit all of the video equipment in approved size carry-on bag! And rapidly running out of time to clear out my “to do” list, though that was never likely to happen.

But these concerns are easily trumped by excitement over two great documentary projects that I will be working on over next three weeks in South Africa and Botswana. For now I’ll just keep you in suspense and say – keep checking back here frequently! The lovely and amazing Kay Butler (who will be joining me for a part of this trip) and I will post stories, comments and photos daily and you do not want to miss any of it.
