Woke up at 4 am which a strange feeling that something was wrong with someone in my family. Could not shake the feeling and was unable to go back to sleep. Having no internet for the past week was nice but also a little worrisome not being able to make sure everyone was okay. My only travel fear is being gone when needed at home.
I told Seith at breakfast that I needed to leave a couple of days early as I needed to check on my family. He said he could get me transport to Gensenyi, Rwanda on Saturday, 2 days from now. With that my only option, I told him to arrange it.
I would not find out until I arrived in Gensenyi upon going straight to the Internet Cafe that one of my best friends in the world and 1sr couisin, Brad Passman, had died early on the morning of the 7th. With the 8-9 hours time difference I figured that I must have awoken a few hours before he passed away. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Love you Brad, rest in peace.
