Departing for Africa



Well the big day has arrived, and I am departing for East Africa. I have a 5 hour drive to Dallas/Ft. Worth airport. From there a 10 hour flight to London Heathrow, several hour layover there, then a 12 hour flight to Nairobi, and then an 8 hour drive over unimproved roads to the little town of Kitale. So, a very rough and tiring schedule, but will be looking forward to seeing the Lovely Ms. EAM!

The picture above was taken in 1936 in Sudan. British Emperial Airlines had flights at this time to various destinations spanning the length of the Nile River which goes between Egypt and Lake Victoria in Uganda/Kenya.

  1. Have a safe trip, I won't say have a nice trip because we know it will be rough, but you most like won't notice much of that, because you are heading for a nice ending spot.

  3. Will you be wearing a spiffy outfit like the gentleman in the photo? The hat is particularly nice.
