Where Are You Going?

It's a question I have been asked with the emphasis on each of those words, and usually followed by "and why?".
Right now, it's 4:30 in the morning, 15 minutes before Linda is taking me to the airport and I still have a handful of things to prepare before I go. I don't have a lot of time to explore the why question right now. For now, the where:
- 2/10 Fly Seattle to London
- 2/11 Fly London to Yaounde Cameroon
- 2/22 Fly Yaounde to Cotonou Benin
- Travel overland through Benin, Togo, & Ghana
- 3/24 Fly Accra Ghana to Freetown Sierra Leone
- 4/4 Fly Freetown to London
- 4/10 Fly London to Seattle
And to be quite honest, that's about all I know. The rest I will figure out once I am on the ground.
Generally, when I list off my destinations, the "where" portion of the question is repeated. Most of the people I know don't know of these countries, couldn't point them out on a map, and have no idea what happens on a daily basis in these places. Not too long ago, I couldn't either, so the first part of the "why" might be so that I can learn about these places. And if you're following along, you will too.
Take a look at the map below, and I'm going to get back to getting ready to go there.
