The start of our second African adventure! After a hectic period for our family that has included helping both of our kids move house at the same time (one family in Torquay and the other into our own house in Warrnambool), we’ve hit the road until Christmas. Our plan is to return as volunteers to the Bandari Project in Tanzania for a month, followed by independent travel around Rwanda, Uganda and lastly Madagascar. Ran into some Warrnambool friends on the train to Melbourne and discovered that we’d be sharing the 13-hour flight with them as far as Abu Dhabi where we hung out with them for a couple of hours. Then it was off to Nairiobi and a four hour stopover before our final leg south to Kilimanjaro, flying right past the iconic peak that we climbed on our previous visit in 2016. Touched down in the early evening and took a one hour taxi ride to Moshi where we are based for three nights. Dog tired. Kaz had to poke me in the taxi (painful spot!) when I nodded off and snored. Oops.

Kilimanjaro from the plane as we flew past. Three years ago we stood on top of that sucker!
