Made it To TZ!

After 3 flights and about 24 hours of travel, we met up with Caitlin and David in Istanbul and we all made it to Mwanza this morning with no problems. It's 10 PM here and we're exhausted, so this'll be short and sweet. I just wanted to give a shout-out to let everyone know we're here safe and sound.

We were picked up at the airport at 8:15 AM by 3 current MKLM missioners, Michele & George (with whom we're staying this week) and Joanne, our regional coordinator. We had a bite to eat then rested for part of the morning and afternoon. The only big event for the day was taking a walk to the market just to get acquainted with the neighborhood. We all made dinner tonight and I uploaded a few of those pictures with shots of the Otte's house onto my Flicr account. I won't link any pictures here because I don't want to use all of George's bandwidth for internet, so you'll have to go over there to check them out. Tomorrow we're supposed to go buy internet and phones, so hopefully I won't have to be so cautious about usage in the future.
