Flying high in blue
Below white waves pound onward
May 13 at JFK I met up with sisters Paula and Jen who flew in from San Francisco - we enjoyed supper and an early night at a hotel. Awakened on a bright, sunny New York morning, we three then boarded a huge South African Airways jet, made ourselves comfortable in Business Class (heaven for long hauls) and headed to Johannesburg. The expected refuelling stop in Senegal didn't happen - apparently now only required on flights originating from Washington, D.C. - so flight was a non-stop 14 hours.
Our fourth adventurer, sweet Babs, arrived from England and we met up within an hour of landing, around 8:00 AM, and headed over to our airport hotel.
Paula, Jen, Babs and Mary ~ ready for a grand safari adventure!
