We said our goodbyes to Belinda and Kigali then headed off on an early flight down to Nairobi with a cheeky stopover in Burundi. There was a slight panic that some of the team wouldn't make to the airport, with the check-in man telling Mark he was closing the check in! Thankfully the check-in man kept it open and the rest of the team made it just in time! (We've been told it wasn't as tight as last year!) We arrived in Nairobi after our Ebola check, yellow fever check and then border control, where we almost lost two members of the team when they were asked to go back and fill in landing cards!
We were picked up by Patrick who drove us to the Biblica Guesthouse via a tour of some of the hot spots of Nairobi. With Elsa even spotting some Zebras- gutting for the rest of us who didn't turn around in time!
We arrived to a warm welcome from Hannah joining the team from her solo Uganda trip. We met the rest of the Ugandan contingent and the squad from Mozambique, including Mark and Jane! We shared a late lunch then off for a walk and a coffee at Java (proper Kenyan Coffee) to stretch our legs. When we got back to the the hotel we shared dinner together with everyone heading off to bed already to rest ahead of the exciting weekend of the CLEAR conference!
