Well – I’m most of the way there (here?).
I’m writing this from an Internet cafe in the airport in J-Burg. The flight was long, but uneventful. I slept a bit. I think that each time I get on an airplane lately they manage to move the seats exactly 1 cm closer to each other. This was an all time record. But there are certainly worse things to endure.
While I was checking in at JFK the counter clerk asked me why I was traveling. I explained what our mission was. She didn’t look that surprised. Apparently that’s one of the only reasons that she could think of to travel to Swaziland. Sad. There’s so much beauty in that place and such extraordinary people.
