March 14, 2015 (Johannesburg, RSA) After a quick light dinner at the City Lodge Hotel, a good night's rest and a shower we met for an early breakfast. We packed into two small cabs and were off to O. R. Tambo airport - a large international hub for sub Saharan Africa. Lots of connecting flights to exotic sounding places! We're soon to board a regional jet to Manzini where Helen Pons is scheduled to pick us up and take us to Mabuda Farms...so still officially a travel day. Not much else planned for today, and activities will start in earnest tomorrow. The weather is pleasant - warm and sunny with a comfortable breeze blowing through the airport waiting lounge, where we'll load a bus to take us to the tarmac in a few minutes. Next blog from Swaziland!
