Day 1 - Travel and Arrival

After two 8 1/2 hour flights, connecting through Frankfurt, we happily arrived Friday at 7:30 PM - a little bit early. We came off the plane, and took a very quick bus ride to the visa lines.

When you go through customs do not mention that you're bringing donated items, A few of our group did and the customs folks were very concerned that we were bringing in items to the country and not paying taxes on them. I'm not sure they realized that these were donated items. Anyway we are through.

This is hysterical as the two folks who looked up are not in our group. You can see Patty and Jack in the back.

And Zablon awaited us as soon as we got through! Such a treat to see a big bright smile of "Karibu" or welcome. 

To bed we go!
