Johannesburg, RSA (March 14, 2014) We've all arrived safely in Joburg, and gathered up our luggage, cleared immigration and customs, exchanged money and met Barbi Moore at the airport. We're staying the night at the City Lodge - not the one at the airport but a newer one just a couple of miles away. A Megabus picked us and our luggage up and now we're paired up and settling in to the hotel. Dinner tonight in about one hour, then we'll all crash I'm sure. We get up early for breakfast tomorrow and head out in vans to the George Hotel in Manzini, Swaziland.
The trip was long and tedious, but uneventful. Its impressive how they are able to fill every seat in the plane these days. We arrived about 20 minutes ahead of schedule - we had good tail winds in the northern hemisphere. I guess we'll have to go against the flow heading home in ten days. Joburg is overcast and cool...in the 60s this afternoon. All an all, not a bad trip. Good to be back in Africa!
