A quiet day spent washing, drying, and packing clothes for the trip home tomorrow. I got my hair washed and braided by a Russian Jew who was fascinating to talk to. Of course, the news of Osama bin Laden's death kept us going back to the travel warnings by the U.S. State Department, but they say just be alert. So, we are not changing any plans and will fly to Amsterdam tomorrow and then on to Arusha, Tanzania, on Wednesday. Thursday, we fly good old Precision Air from Arusha to Mwanza where John and Shaban will be waiting to pick us up. We can't wait to get home and get back to work. We have a lot to do. My son, Chris, is taking us someplace special for dinner tonight, but it is a surprise. Keep us in your prayers as we travel over the next three days.
