On our way...
After an INCREDIBLE week at the olympics in Vancouver with the family, I had a short week for last-minute Rwanda preparations. 8 months of no vacation, then this turnaround! (Although I'm not in any way deluded into thinking that Rwanda will be a vacation... most people have found that they work more, and need a vacation to recover from it).
This will be a long journey into Kigali - around 28 hours if everything goes according to plan. I'm already regretting not having brought a pillow, but looking at the size of our luggage there would never have been room for it. I generally try to pack light, but 4 weeks on the other side of the world with medical equipment, work clothes, hiking gear, etc. adds up in a hurry.
One thing at a time: next stop will be Auntie Annie's pretzels in Newark airport.
