I send you greetings from Johannesburg, South Africa. The family has crossed the ocean and arrived safely to the other sde. Our official activities do not begin until tommorrow and that is a good thing. We are tired from the rushed final preparations and the flight too. I never knew how small planes were till riding on one for fifteen hours. It was a smooth and uneventful flight. Yet my enthusiasm for being here still draws me to take in all I can even though some rest should be on the aenda.
