arrival into Kigali, RwandaOnce again excited to report that Vicky and I are safely "home". We were greeted at the airport by Christophe & Pastor Francis - how lovely it is to be welcomed back by familiar smiling faces & big hugs!
It is amazing that after 16 hours of flying on 3 different planes over 3 different continents and every single plane was on time and my luggage arrived safely as well - Gosh I <3 American Airlines and Brussels Airlines!! Another great part about the past day of travel has been that since you all know how much I "love" flying with turbulence, is that every flight was super super smooth as well. And super big bonus was the fact that the last flight from Brussels to Kigali, there were many free seats so Vicky got 4 seats and I got 2 seats (cause I had to have a window seat) and we were able to spread out and relax, even though Brussels Airline doesn't have individual tv screens!
We called John to announce our safe arrival then drove "home" to the Iris Guest House. Where we learned we'd be staying in the presidential suite and that it is! When you walk in, you enter our living room behind it is the kitchen, off to one side is the dining room and half bath. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms each with their own full bathrooms and a balcony.
We've been here for 4.5 hours, have unpacked, drank a Fanta L'orange, eaten some pomme frites,added minutes to our Rwandan SIM card, connected ourselves to the internet, and next step will be getting a good nights sleep.
