Locks of Love

I had not cut my hair since I left for Poland in September 2007.  Initially it was just because I was in grad school & was lazy, but after it got a bit of length (about 8 months in) I started thinking about donating it.  My brother had done it once, and my sister was in the process of growing her hair out long enough to donate too, so I decided to go another year before cutting my hair.  Well, I finally cut my hair today (well, my mom actually cut it for me) and I put two braids in an envelope to Locks of Love - www.locksoflove.com - so hopefully the hair can be of use to somebody!  Oh, there's also a picture of a snake that was outside... it was alive, but wasn't moving much, either sick/hurt or scared, not sure.  A neighbor took him/her away, and I'm not sure what he did with the snake.

OH, I guess I should make this "travel related" eh?  The hair I chopped off traveled in/through 15 different countries before going to be a wig: Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Germany, Ireland, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, UK, Ukraine and USA.
