A river cruise near Omboué
With all the posts of our travels lately, I haven't really written about regular life in Port Gentil.
Ugh, it's been busy - so busy!
It seemed when we were working on the move months ago, time crawled by. Day in and day out it felt like nothing was happening and all we wanted was for 'things' to come together. In fact, we even tried to push up our move date to June 1 (partly because I wanted to be able to take advantage of all of the 'nice' months in Norway and partly because I was a bit fed up with Gabon.)
Now - here we are and it's all coming to an end so quickly! Our move has been shifted up by one week meaning we'll be leaving Gabon for the final time in 15 days.
Basically, we're scrambling. Moving is a lot of work and a transcontinental move is an ENORMOUS amount of work. We've sold all of our furniture, are in the process of trying to sell my car and we are literally knee deep in paperwork. This in addition to leaving parties, Joe's regular work and my regular life. It's exhausting and I've upped my cocktail per night to
2 3 solely as a coping mechanism.
In any case, things are coming together and we're busy trying to relish our last weeks of 40 degree heat, pools, beaches, good friends and cheep booze.
