I packed my bags on Saturday, April 11th. I’m traveling light, only taking a checked bag and a carry on. Dave and I drove to Omaha and spent the night near Eppley Airport. On Sunday morning, Dave dropped me off at the airport. I boarded Delta flight #4547 for Detroit and we took off at 10:19am. Landing in Detroit at 12:51pm, I had a layover of 7 hours before boarding Delta flight #134 for Amsterdam, a flight of almost 7 hours traveling across 6 world time zones, leaving Detroit just after 7:00pm eastern daylight time. I’m scheduled to land in Amsterdam at 8am Monday morning their local time.
More tomorrow, after a brief stop in Amsterdam, and after I arrive at Kilimanjaro International Airport between Moshi and Arusha, Tanzania in eastern Africa.
Please stay tuned!
