I am officially a 'World Traveler'!

Today my big, fat envelope from YFU arrived with my World Traveler Handbook, an American Overseas Parent Handbook, a book written by a YFU alumnus from 1978, a nice letter from Jessica (my really sweet admissions counselor) and a T-shirt that could pass for a dress. I still don't have any details on anything, except that I'm supposed to be departing from Austin Mueller Airport... the one that was just turned into a housing development?
This is the first time it has hit me that I will be thousands of miles from my country, my language, and my friends, family and pets for over a month. I think that tiny bit of terror at the back of my mind makes it all the more exciting!
