It’s Thursday. That must mean I am heading back to good ol’ RDU, my second home.
This morning I will grab a rental car and drive down to Raleigh for a flight to Maputo, the capital of Mozambique. My first stop is Atlanta. Then it’s about 15 hours to Johannesburg, South Africa. The final leg from Joburg to Maputo is only about an hour and a half, but by that point, who cares?
Although getting there is supposed to be half the fun, I think that’s the half I would love to skip. But once there, I know I will be glad I made the trip.
I have been asked to attend the birthday celebration of Nelson Mandela’s widow. It’s a long way to travel for a birthday party, but this is a most special lady, a good friend and a strong supporter of Stop Hunger Now in South Africa and Mozambique. She is a true champion of ending hunger in our lifetime.
So, it’s back on the road again. Stay tuned. There will be plenty more to come as the adventure unfolds.
