New Summer Adventure to Africa
On June 11, I will leave Houston to fly for the next 28 hours to Arusha, Tanzania. We will be flying into Kilimajaro Airport, so that should give you an idea of where we are going. I will be traveling with co-teacher, Holly and 13 students. The above photo is something I hope to duplicate during this adventure. We will spend the first eight days in a small village and will be doing some ditch digging and community bonding as we shovel. The next seven days are on photo safari, something I have been wanting to do for most of my life. We will have to spend the night in tents (not the 5 star that you read about) and we must bring all of the camping supplies with us. Sadly, I recently found out that the 16 miles hike has been cancelled and instead we will go 3-4 miles before the Land Rover picks us up.
The students will be keeping a blog also but the internet will not be too accessible so post will be infrequent. I will list all the blogs next week when we meet in the classroom.
