Long, long, long day to get here. Horizon to Portland. Mt Rainier, Mt. St. Helens. Mt Adams Mt. Hood all in their glory outside the window. Delta Sky Club in PDX quite nice. Off th AMS. Took a sleeper and after veggie lunch took a nice 6 hour sleep. KLM Lounge 52 in AMS was huge! Lots of food and drink choices. Check in at the gate was long, with extremely high security. Got the pat down, maybe because of my long sweater. Another 8 hours flying with marginal movie choices, long long day. We arrived at 845pm and Colonel Uto (?) greeted us outside customs. We met several pairs of people from all over the country before we even got into the bus for the ride to Arusha Mountain Resort. At the hotel we had hot towel and champagne greeting followed by a short briefing by Seth our guide for the next two weeks. Karibu - Welcome to Tanzania.
