Quote of the day: “All can be done; try your part” – Nelson Mandela

Today our journey began! Things began with a team breakfast half-way through, I personally felt like we really were “one”, as Edward keeps emphasizing. It was exciting to think that we barely knew each other, but after a couple of weeks we would have so much in common and surely be friends. We were a little late getting on the road, but even after a detour to get a piece of lost luggage at the airport (hooray for Sherri!), we made it to Iringa just fine. Along the way we were treated to an impromptu safari with sightings of impala, zebras, giraffes, water buffalo, and baboons. We also sadly saw at least 6 bad car accidents…one of them was a turned over pepsi truck and several people were amongst the glass cleaning up. But here we are in Irgina and the accommodations are wonderful once again, and we just got fed a delicious meal. Alright – must wrap up….can’t wait for Day 2.
