After one of the craziest travel days–we all made it (along with our luggage) to South Africa. We were greeted by our local guide and also one of my best friends from grad school who lives and works here in Africa. We are staying in a hotel next to the airport so everyone can shower, eat and relax after an extraordinarily long travel day. We got on the plane last night in Atlanta in the dark and arrived here in the dark–its a very strange feeling! Tomorrow we will be up and on the bus pretty early to head to “The Kingdom of eSwatini” or Swaziland. We hope everyone is doing well at home!!
