Travel and Arrival
Plane One---Seattle to Dallas, in the company of many of America's finest military personnel, and arriving just in time for us to enjoy the inter-terminal rollercoaster train and arrive at our departure gate as our names were being called for final boarding.
Plane Two---Dallas to London, during which we attempted to sleep but also watched "Paul Blart, Mall Cop." After negotiating the labyrinth of Heathrow airport, we boarded right on time, then waited an hour for unidentified "precious cargo" to be loaded...
Plane Three---London to Nairobi, on which our vegetarian meal status was a source of dismay for the flight personnel.
We were met at the airport by Charles, our taxi driver, and escorted to Country Lodge for our first night's rest. All restaurants are closed, but we aren't above a vending machine meal every once in a while. Delicious!
