Hello from Croatia! This is the 33rd country I’ve been to on my trip, and it’s the last one I’ll visit in 2016. In all, I’ve now biked more than 25,000 miles (40,000 kilometers) since leaving home 16 months ago — more than the entire distance around the equator. I never imagined when I left San Francisco that I’d actually circumnavigate the globe, but now that I have, at least in terms of mileage, I think it’s time for me to take a little break.
Today, I’m running through slums, markets, red light districts, airports, and villages in Asia. As I stepped over the gutter into a store, my travel partner commented on the open drain. I didn’t even notice it. I didn’t notice the man taking a bath in public on the side of the road, or the sacred cows resting in the middle of a busy street, requiring all the cars to go around.
In pursuit of a way to highlight the effects limited resources can play on your quality of life, myself and other Junior League of Savannah members will be wearing the exact same outfit each day for the next five days (the little black dress). Clothing is easily overlooked when we consider making efforts in combatting poverty, especially the type of clothing needed to build confidence in the individual wearing it and the type that may be suitable for interview or professional purposes.
Last night the students at East White Oak came in for the last class of the 9 week session that the East White Oak Community Center pledged to pay for. It was bittersweet as we all could feel our time together was being cut short. They worked hard to make sure their dances are in tip top shape for their intimate performance scheduled for next week, March 15 at 6:30 pm right at the East White Oak Community Center.
