Next week I fly from Bloemfontein to Johannesburg on the first leg of my journey to North Africa. In Johannesburg I board the international flight for Addis Ababa, where I have an hour's wait and then I board the plane for Khartoum
OK, so I've done it. I've booked my air ticket to the Sudan. At first I decided to fly out on 5th September. Then I brought the date forward to 27th August. Last Saturday, when I put another chore on hold until "next-week-because-I-still-have-ample-time-before-I-leave", I picked up the telephone and booked my ticket for the 20th.
Now I have to finish all my preparations; I have to be ready to leave home within a week from today.
In a few days' I'll post about my final prepartions.
