It's Time For Africa!
Fri 26 Sep: “Waka Waka – this time for Africa!”
The questions of the day were most certainly “what day is it?” and “what time zone are we in?” Both were fair questions, as it took us three flights, thirty hours, and EIGHT time zones but we’re finally in Africa!
The theme of our travel was “EAT.” It’s all we seemed to do. Eat on the plane, eat in the airport, eat in customs, eat at the hotel, EAT EAT EAT. Everyone has managed the journey brilliantly. Our first-time flyer Ryan was a legend, we got to experience the brand new Boeing 787 Dreamliner and even the “adults” (though we’re not THAT old) are functioning despite a serious lack of sleep.
Oh, and Shakira’s Waka Waka (Time For Africa) is running on loop in everyone’s head (check out the video!).
After showers and a little nap it was off to World Vision HQ for a security briefing followed by a wander around central Kigali, where everyone had the opportunity to take in the sights, sounds and smells of this bustling capital city. It’s now just past 8pm and all 22 students are either fast asleep or on their way to dreamland. We have a big day ahead tomorrow. More soon!
