i'm here! (wish i could say this in portuguese, but i'm afraid that i've only been in country for 4.5 hours)
okay so after going to bed at 1am and then waking up at 2am, loading our bags for all 71 people on two charter buses and then heading to jfk where we arrived at 6am for our 11:15am flight and had to wait until 7:30am to check in, we then sat at the gate and then on a plane for 15 hours and then waited in johannesburg for 4 hours and then took a 50 minute flight to maputo the capital where we were picked up and then bused to a hotel...that has been my past 2 days. i finally took a shower which was warm and didn't require a bucket. love you and hope you are well. blog soon. paz.
