Getting to Africa

Day i [Tuesday]

Fly: Boston direct to Amsterdam

This overnight flight doesn’t even seem like a big deal to me anymore. I usually sleep the whole way, but this time I met some guys in a band who were starting their European Tour. Opting for interesting conversation over sleep made for a sleepy next day in Amsterdam.


Day ii [Wednesday]


Napping, a few errands, and ironically, making non-Africa-related travel plans [to visit my mom in Milwaukee after returning]. Also a long walk and a nice dinner.


Day iii [Thursday]

Fly: Amsterdam to Cape Town

11 hours is a long time to be in a plane, but this flight actually went surprisingly fast. The process of renting a car and getting to the hotel in Kalk Bay was also pretty uneventful, save for driving on the left side of the road.

After 6 minutes in Cape Town, it’s already obvious how much new development there is in anticipation of the World Cup this summer.
