South Africa Team

Here we are ... minus Kinsey who couldn't make it to our commissioning on Sunday.

We leave December 3rd for Durban, South Africa.
Lisa (me), Jonathan, Kelly, Natalie, Tami, Jodie

Oh, and if anyone knows, please help us to settle a packing issue ...

Is it more space-effective to ROLL t-shirts or LAY (not folded) t-shirts into a suitcase? We are taking t-shirts down to Durban for the kids and we had a (completely friendly) disagreement of sorts about what was most space-effective.

Thoughts (because I certainly know what mine are!)?

I say lay them. Its easier, and you can also fit stuff on top of them as well. For a three month trip I took one real suitcase, and that was how I packed all my shirts (and shorts for that matter).

Im so excited for you! Africa has been a dream on mine for as long as I can remember.

Im a pretty new reader, but I cant wait to read more!

I say roll them. I did this with all of my clothes when I went to Colombia and it worked out great. And none of the wrinkles you get with laying or folding them.

I'm so excited for you and can't wait to see Africa through your eyes!!!
