November 2nd 2021: Passports with visas arrive

The passports arrive at 1030am. This is really happening… it felt real before but now time is running out. Several hundred times of me packing my case and checking the weight will occur over the next 24 hours. Items put into the suitcase and others taken out as I try to match the 50lb weight limit on my two cases. Sounds like a lot of weight but it is hard to pack to leave for 9 months. The weather will be similar to Florida, so I can layer my clothes if it gets cold.

Shout out to my 120 babies that I left behind in Florida. I miss you all!

Please email me at chinajo@jcastaldo.com from a personal account as I can’t reply to school email. Look forward to hearing from you.
