Africa Day 1:: WE’RE HERE!!!

I am FINALLY sitting outside at our beautiful guest home in BUJUMBURA, BURUNDI!!!  From Houston to Chicago to Brussels to Bujumbura… I am done with airplanes for awhile:)  It was dark when we arrived (7 hours ahead of Houston time), so I still don’t really know where I am, but I will see it tomorrow!  We are dirty and sleepy, but we had REAL food and are taking SHOWERS tonight!!  Enjoy a few pics…

Fresh bananas and mandarins (not limes)I can’t remember what this deliciousness was called.PIZZA!!  Check out the boxes!!  Love it!One of our fearless leaders, Kelley (her husband, Claude, is our other leader), telling us about tomorrow’s plans.Here we are!!  Good looking group!  (And I am behind the camera – but I promise I am here and alive!)

More to come – but not tonight!!

I miss those baby bananas… they were my favorite!!! Sneak me some home please! 😉 hehehehe. I didn’t realize those were the guest houses you were staying at. I think my team went there one night for dinner when we stayed in Matara. Love you and the whole team and am praying for you guys like crazy!!! Have fun!
