Editor’s note: We’re excited to announce that one of our Mocha Club members and volunteers, Annie, will be blogging from Capetown, South Africa on the Mocha Club trip that leaves on May 28th! This is our first official “trip blogger” so please help us spread the word and check back for updates!

Hi y’all. I should have known better. I should have known that if I planned to pack on Tuesday, it would actually get done on Wednesday. I’m not a great pre-packer. And honestly, the pressure of you waiting on the video is the only reason I’m packed now. A few things:

1) I’m learning how to use this newfangled flip video camera. It’s very cool, but forgive the shaky-shakes.

2) We have a professional video editor that works with us at Mocha Club. I am not her.

3) Once I finished the video, I realized I had forgotten to pack any pants. So for total honesty’s sake, you should know that I’m going to have to pack some pants.

We leave for South Africa from Nashville on Thursday, May 28th but don’t arrive in Cape Town until Saturday. We’ll update you as soon as we are able.

Clean Water is one of the basic needs to sustain life. I was stunned, no, embarrassed, to learn the death toll for lack of it. Where had I been? Oh right, lounging in my garden tub full of it! Time to towel off & get to work. Mocha Club is my feet on the ground in Africa. We make a great team!

I love the Mocha Club because they are encouraging and empowering people who make a difference in Africa. I joined because of their commitment to the different projects areas and the development of sustainable solutions.
