So I'm going to Africa.
If anyone is wondering who they have to thank for this it would be Lois, my dance teacher Sophomore year at the University of Vermont, who offered a West African dance class as gym credit.
Who would want to take 'walking for fitness' when you can embrace your inner self, learn part of a new culture, work out harder than you ever have AND have 5 live drummers playing for you for 2 hours?
Heres my itinerary for the trip:
