We have arrived!
We boarded our plane at 2:30 on Tuesday afternoon. 24 hours later we were getting on our bus to be taken to our hotel for the evening. It was 24 hours, but according to the time zones it was only 16. Still it was a long day to be mostly sitting in an airline seat.
It was dark when we entered Tanzania, so even though we had a stop at Kilimanjaro Airport we couldn't see the mountain.
We rode to our hotel in the dark as well, but there was still plenty of activity. Dar es Salaam has a population of 1.36 million. I couldn't help but wonder about the stories of the lives of the people we saw.
Today, we will be taking a bus ride of about 9 hours to reach Iringa. I'm looking forward to seeing more of this country.
Another one of our group is also blogging. Those of you from Shepherd of the Hills Church will remember Pastor Horacio. His blog is at www.pastorhoracio2016tanzaniatrip.wordpress.com. (Sorry, I'm not sure why that doesn't turn into a hyperlink when i typed it. You'll just have to type out the address in your browser.)
Thank you all for your prayers for a safe voyage; they worked. Keep praying.
