Zambia? no. Jo-berg? yes. Zambia on Friday? Possibly

This is our group in the line for Customs! We were constantly overwhelming these people because it is not easy to handle 58 Americans who want sleep haha!

Here is 2 of the people in our group (the only married couple) Shaun and Megan with a group of Soccer players from Namimbia

Hey everyone. I just wanted to say that I made it safe to South Africa but we missed our connector because of a delay in ATL. We got to spend the night in some hotel in Jo-Berg last night and let me tell you, it was a blast. Myself and 9 others went downtown via taxi and went to a club. It was the best time and I also figured out who the "fun" people are going to be... lol. I have slept a total of maybe 8 hours in the last 3 days... Too much to do and not enough time. I figured since I was able to go out in downtown I now don't have to make a trip to Jo-Berg in the near future. So Cape Town will be my next South African adventure.

I want to say that the Peace Corps is doing so much right now for us and have been a huge help in getting us rooms and getting some of us back on flights haha. We had about 15 people on a 10:55AM flight to Zambia this morning, another 15 or so scheduled to leave at 6:50PM tonight and the rest are on standby for hte 6:50 flight and not sure what will happen to them if they don't get on that flight. But flexability is what the PC is all about isn't it?

Everyone here is super interested in getting started in Zambia, but now we are just hoping to make it there :)

Everyone is just waiting on the information about where we will be staying after just missing our connector!!!
Everyone about to go through customs!!! Jo-Berg here we come!


  1. That's way cool. Hopefully you get there soon. Pictures are cool, could you maybe next time be in one of them. Be safe. Love you Mom and Dad.

  2. We miss you already! This is going to be such an adventure for you. I'm so jealous! Keep the blogs coming so we can know you're ok and live vicariously through you! Stay safe!

    Love you,
