Contact Info and Wishlist

**Because of reader feedback, I have decided to remove my huge list of books and instead create a wishlist on Amazon.com, so you can check off what you buy. Also I think Amazon is the cheapest. SEE LINK TO THE LEFT!!



So I will be leaving for the Gambia from Philadelphia in exactly one month from tomorrow. Soon this blog will be filled with funny anecdotes and pensive observations, but for now, it's just my address and a wish list. So, please write to me:

Marnie Florin, PCT
U.S. Peace Corps
PO Box 582
Banjul, The Gambia
West Africa

OR SEND ME STUFF!! It's true, I haven't left yet and already I'm telling you what to send me. But, take into consideration that it takes a month to receive packages. So if you send something tomorrow, I will get it right when I arrive and feel very happy.

Things I would love to receive:
Letters
Magazines
Kashi Bars
Teriyaki Beef Jerky or Nuggets (don't judge, they're delicious)
Dried foods

Label the green customs forms with "school supplies," "religious materials," "food," "personal health supplies" etc. DO NOT write down anything valuable (like batteries, solar radio, etc.) even if they are in the box. You can use generic terms like "electronics."
**Thanks to Leslie and Ryan

Is this a Christmas list or a blog??

Would you prefer teriyaki beef jerky and catch 22 or dried foods and Into the Wild? I think I''ll just get you Panda Express orange chicken and Donald Trump's new biography.

maybe you can set up a wishlist/bridal registry through amazon or costco so that people can see which of these items has already been purchased by someone else.

Dear Marnie - I just got your letter and was delighted to hear from you. I am so excited about your plans--thrilled and nervous also!--and will check in on the blog often. I am glad also to see your new email address!!
Take care -- Judith Miller
