7 days…

Just a week to go before we are on our way to London and then Kenya. This time next Tuesday we will be somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean in a Virgin Atlantic A340-600. It is an 8 1/2 hour flight and we arrive at 9:25 in the morning. We are in London for 12 hours before leaving for Nairobi. London is 5 hours ahead of Florida so it will be like arriving at 4:30 in the morning!

Today was a day for dealing with the remaining medical issues. Our guide has arranged for a subscription to Flying Doctors in case we need to be evacuated in an emergency. Today he requested our health insurance information so they can guarantee immediate admission to the hospital without dealing with paper work first. That would be reassuring except the doctors in Nairobi are on strike. Well technically, some of them are. The Doctor’s Union reached an agreement last night with government and it appears to have fallen apart just hours later. Best plan is to not get sick.

Nancy also went to pick up the Malaria drugs today, only to find they hadn’t ordered them yet even though we dropped off the prescription last week. :( Good thing we left extra time. They are overnighting them to the pharmacy, so we should have them tomorrow.

Tonight’s image is another giraffe as we get excited about Giraffe Manor.
