We made it!
From door to door our trip took 30 hours, but we are finally here! 5 of our runners have never flown before so it was a brutal awakening flying out of a windy and rainy Chicago Ohare Airport yesterday morning! Despite the bumps and scares though, we were all flying pros by the time we were done with our 4 legs! We went…
Chicago to Washington D.C
Washington D. C to Dakar, Senegal
Dakar to Johannesburg
Johannesburg to Durban
Along our journey today we figured out (the hard/funny way) that the bathrooms on the airplanes have locks, security ladies like to hit on Antonio, pens automatically explode in my pockets, Ashley A. does not appreciate the ticket counter person joking that she has to go to Cape Town instead of Durban with the group, and finally… silly putty does not come out of clothes!
We have already conquered serious fears, learned a lot about South African culture, and had a lot of laughs…and that was just on the trip here!
Check out the pics, Safari tomorrow!
