Friday, August 3

Anyone from outside of the Greater Toronto Area arrives...

1 from Thunder Bay: Maribeth
1 from Swift Current: Shayla
1 from Calgary: Shirley

We stayed overnight at a nice hotel - last chance for a Canadian meal and sleep in a comfy bed (with adjustable firmness!).

This photo was taken the following morning. Can you guess who is who?

From here we were picked up by the airport shuttle.  Departure from Toronto Airport scheduled at 10:15 a.m. ....but we had lots of "bonding time" as we sat on plane until 2 p.m. .... then finally up in the air with Ethiopian Airlines!

Stopover in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia - beautiful and green all around - on the ground for less than an hour (just long enough to make 1 post on facebook with the free wireless internet available....oh what a treat wireless internet is!!!)

We landed in Dar es Salaam at 1:25 p.m. (or thereabouts) with more than half our luggage missing.... the disappointment was soon dissolved by the warm greeting we had from our Tanzanian team outside the gate :)  


  1. What about Joan from Maple Ridge, B.C.? (:

  2. Thanks for noticing!!!! Joan met up with the rest of the team in Addis Ababa
