I am sure you can imagine how much more they have to prepare for mentally, physically and all the provisions they do not have to carry.
Its not that i travel a lot, but something changes in me once I am up in the air. Really I forget if I am going or coming and if i am well prepared mentally and physically and well packed for the soldiers or civilians i see when i get there.
You can imagine me waking up looking at my phone battery life and running to get my charger in the states? or thinking why can't i run to the store at 10pm to buy groceries in nigeria or should i let this car pass or horn and give him the you are MAD sign? or thinking this is odd ? is this the end of the world or am i the only one alive ? how come there is no one on the roads hawking, fighting, selling stolen phones, begging, washing your windshield, pissing, shitting behind the bush?
Its 6am here, guess i am still jet lagged but my mind really isnt sure where it is now, i am sure in time i will adjust to the peace and civility but only for a short while, the jungle is not a place for Dreamers and Poets, and the wolves and vultures will eat the unprepared soldier.
