Off I Go to Durban

mecodyoliver Everything is packed and ready to go.

After the last rather rugged trip down to SoCal from Washington, I am hoping for a very uneventful trip. My flight leaves LAX at 9pm, connect to the SAA flight in New York and arrive Durban 11:15 am or so on Friday. Time to put the old brain in neutral and enjoy the ride.

There are five books on my iPad and scrabble and card games, plus there will be movies on board so that should be enough entertainment, as long as the batteries don't give out on me.

It's been fun down here with the boys and Mel. The little ones are growing so fast, I just want to be sure Cody and Mel use FaceTime so I can watch them grow. Heaven only knows when I will be back. We had such fun at Travel Town, and I would just love to be able to keep doing things like that with them.

Leaving this time just doesn't seem real. It is almost like someone else going, even though I have made all the arrangements, done the packing etc. I suppose once I am sitting on the veranda at Mick and Debbies, things will feel better.

Now I just have to get through the next couple of days and get my feet back on South African soil, drive on the wrong side of the road, get over being a "Yank" and get the old Sarf Effrican accent back.
