Setting off for Odyssey2 Phase 3: Africa & Middle East!

Leaving home in one hour's time - my friend, Tristan, is going to send me off to the airport. Flying Emirates to Dubai - 7 hours red eye flight, 1.5hr wait there, and then 9 hours flight to Accra, Ghana.

Aren't you excited? I am somewhat worried about security issues and the control freak (isn't everyone in the finance industry one?) in me is unsettled by the fact that the intinerary is in a flux and many visas have yet to be obtained...

Most importantly, my friends, wish me luck!
