Time to Pay the Piper

At long last, the day I've been dreading/anticipating has come: Africa Travel Resource wants the rest of our payment today. For those of you keeping track of these things, our final payment is $14,289.50, or $2,857.90 each. I gritted my teeth a few minutes ago and sent ATR my credit card info. For me at least, the piper has been paid.

So what have I paid out so far?

$3,722.20 - total paid to Africa Travel Resource
1,169.61 - airfare from Amsterdam to Kilimanjaro
666.00 - airfare from Richmond to Amsterdam
(666.00) - free ticket for my Richmond-Amsterdam leg
230.00 - immunizations
201.00 - travel insurance from Access America

Yikes. Good thing I'm already mostly geared up for this adventure.
