"Oh..yeah.. I am going to Kenya as a part of G-Lab at Sloan for three weeks."
At first, I wonder why my friends and family back home are so shocked to hear that I am going to Kenya for three weeks in January. Don't I look like an adventurous type? Ever since I got back home in Korea, my family is trying to persuade me going to Kenya is not the greatest idea. Imagine how much great Korean food you could've been eating or how much time you could've spending with your friends and family.... They asked, "Is this absolutely necessary for you?"
