Well, here we are, 7 of us anyway (Matt, Kelly, Meg, Beckett, Erin, Jim and me for any relatives trying to get news), in the Jo’berg airport, over a day past when we were due to arrive in Botswana. Due to a series of unfortunate events, we were stranded and alone in the Nairobi airport 2 nights ago. Caught in a legendary traffic snarl in Nairobi, we spent 2 and 1/4 hrs either motionless in traffic or driving hell bent for leather, going THE WRONG WAY on the other side of the highway. Nairobi Airways denied us boarding anyway, even though we there almost an hour before take off and their rules said we’d be okay. Three hrs and $1,000 later, we booked for the next morning, but bad news…. next plane from Jo,berg to Maun delayed, but will get there tonight, ….we think.
Most importantly, this is the most wonderful group of people imaginable. Smart, flexible, supportive, funny funny funny funny. To them all, to Kelly and Matt (who own this laptop) and Meg and Beckett and JIm and Erin: REMEMBER THE BISCUITS
