Italia…in tre settimane

In three weeks I will be on a plane to Rome. I can’t believe it — its still a bit surreal. I’m actually getting more nervous, because there’s no turning back now. Not only do I have to remind myself that the ticket is already purchased, but now my replacement at work has been hired and will be starting in a few weeks.

I’m making last minute preparations, making sure I have everything. Besides my travel Gohonzon and clothes, the next two most important items — makeup and hair products. While I do enjoy the idea of living in Italy for the next few months, I highly doubt that they will carry Iman makeup in my shade or Kinky Curly Knot Today leave-in conditioner. I just don’t see it being offered at the local negozio. I don’t plan on wearing too much makeup while I’m on the farm anyway – maybe on the weekend if I go out or something. However I want to have it if and when I need it.

Is there anything else I should need before I arrive? Hopefully I’ll think of it before I jump on the plane….
