Chapter II – Ndola, Zambia
Nancy and I spent seven hours in the London Airport. We hung around the airport lounge, ate, laughed and had “15 minute” chair messages which were incredible. Then we left for Lusaka and arrived on time. We have over 300 pounds of luggage, not including the 25 pairs of grey socks she made me steal from first and business class on the flight to London. Somehow, we got all the luggage plus the grey socks, on the prop plane to Ndola without any fee. Charles and Margaret met us at the Ndola airport and helped us to the hotel.
It is quire warm here-80 degrees and humid. We both unpacked and have now spent over two hours sorting through the four bags of items we brought for the kids and gifts for the staff. There are so many books, pencils, pens, frisbees, tootsie pops, mints, chopsticks that it is hard to believe that we could carry all of this. We hope to get some rest and then we are off to Charles and Margaret’s house for dinner. We are attaching some photos so you can see what we are writing about. For those of you who have stayed or eaten at Michaelangelo’s hotel, the place looks a lot better in the dark! Also, for a place with two pools, there are no chairs to sit out!
Got to go! Time for a trail mix bar.

So glad you made it safely! And suddenly I’m glad I didn’t burden you with more things 😉 Sorry to hear about Michelangelos…definitely take some more pictures so we can see what it’s like. Send our love to the kids and the staff — looking forward to the next post!
