Ginny is in Africa!

In front of St. Michael's

Late Friday evening, Sandy and I waited at the bus station for Ginny, Sandy’s youngest sister to arrive from the US.  She flew from Washington DC to Addis Ababa, Addis to Lilongwe, was met by a family friend at the airport and then she took a bus from Lilongwe to Blantyre.  In total, it was about 30 hours of travel.  We expected the bus ride to take about four hours so we were waiting patiently at 8:30 pm.  Thirty minutes went by, thirty more, and then finally at 9:45 the bus slowly ambled into the parking lot. 

She looked exhausted but excited.  She brought us a whole suitcase full of stuff from the US – everything from my Folgers Instant Mocha Chocolate cappuccino to tennis rackets.  It was like Christmas.

We went to bed early but Saturday was busy.  We took her to the big shopping center in town and then to the curio market.  She got to experience bargaining at its finest and came home with a painting.  We had dinner with friends and then watched more World Cup.

We’re so excited to have her here and can’t believe we get her for two whole months!
