I’m typing this while sitting in the Kilimanjaro International Airport, taking advantage of the free WiFi, while waiting for the ticketing desk to open. Three hours early is too early, I guess. We are starting on our epic journey today. OK, it’s not that epic in terms of number of countries visited, but I did realize that we will be taking virtually every form of transport during our journey.
Below is a rough diagram giving a general idea of our trip and its various modes of transport. We are flying to Zambia to visit one of my high school friends from RVA, taking the train back to Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, staying a couple of days in Zanzibar, and then taking a bus back to Moshi.
I was going to write more, but the ticket desk just opened, so we’ve gotta run.
As they say in Tanzania, “Safari njema!” (Good travels!)
