Instead of walking over dirt sidewalks with matatus whizzing past me, I'll be walking on tree-lined, paved walkways with a tram going by.
Instead of being the only white face amongst the sea of people, I'll be one of many white faces.
Instead of going through a secured gate with a guard opening the doors, I'll walk out the front door of an apartment complex - no gates, no barbed wire, no shards of glass lining the walls around the compound.
Instead of wearing sandals and sundresses, I'll be headed to work in a coat and boots.
Instead of an African slum next door, I'll have a park and shops and European architecture nearby.
It will definitely be a change. Looking forward to the newness.
