At last, I'm off to the Sudan!

My garden here at home in South Africa

By the time this post is published today, I will be on my way to Bloemfontein. I catch the domestic flight to Johannesburg at 9:45 this morning. I board the international flight, Ethiopian Airlines at 14:15 and I'm on my way! Whoo-Hoo! Tomorrow, Friday, is SUNDAY in Sudan (confusing I know, but even I will have to get used to it!) so my husband is home. I should be set up in my home office in his apartment by Saturday morning and hope to get back to blogging.

I have glanced at all the comments and thank you all for your kind comments. Of course we ALL know how it feels like you're on a roller-coaster the last few days before a long trip.

Hear you all many thousands of kilometers up the continent!

The view from my husband's apartment in Khartoum (on a windy day, LOL!)


  1. Have a wonderful and SAFE trip, Jo.

  2. Hope you had a safe journey. That wind looks fierce outside hubby's window. Why will it be Sunday?

  3. Hi Jo,
    How exciting ! I'm looking forward to discovering this country through your posts & photos. I have been traveling "vicariously all summer; so many of my friends have flown away too !

    Enjoy & stay cool :)

  4. Wishing you a safe journey, Jo .... can't wait to hear from you once you land safely on Sudanese soil :)

  5. Rejoicing with you that this day is finally here!

  6. Hope you have a safe journey.
    We want you to blog about your impressions of Sudan, not your problems getting there!!!

  7. Wow, that's a lot of wind in the palm trees. Hope you have a great trip.
