March 16, 2012 (Johannesburg) After a bumpy but otherwise uneventful Delta Flight 200, a full wide body 777 landed in Johannesburg after 14 hours and 27 minutes of flying. As typical, it was cramped and a fully booked flight, but overall quite smooth. A meal and two snacks ate up some of the time and I watched a movie (J Edgar Hoover) and a few reruns of The Big Bang, snoozed a bit and wandered around where I could every couple of hours. Ore-efe Adesina got the luck of the draw - bulkhead row seat so he was stretching out! Glad he could make it. Ron Hobbs spent most of his time watching chick flicks best I could tell. We've checked into the City Lodge hotel which is attached to the airport so was very handy. Nice hotel - will send pics later. Good to be here. We're tired and about to head for a light dinner and crash...its CDT +7 hours here. More soon.
