Lilongwe...the Long Way!

An email from Greta (6-21):

Hi Brandon and families!

Just emailing to let you all know we are safe and sound as far as Johannesburg. Besides the hiccup we had in the beginning with our delayed flight, everything else has gone pretty smoothly, we made our connecting flights with no trouble at all. Our bags were not quite on top of it as we were however.... They didn't quite make the quick connection from Atlanta to Joburg. The airport told us that they had been rerouted to another South-African flight leaving from JFK, which got into Johannesburg at 5:00 this evening, so we're expecting them to arrive at the hotel very very soon. (It's 6:30 now.)

We just finished up an awesome, awesome tour of the city with a guide that our concierge put us in touch with. It helped us stay awake, for the most part.... but there was some serious nodding off in the backseat on the way home. We're all pretty wiped out, but will be heading to bed SOON.

Thank you for your prayers, they are working. :)
Love to you all,

P.S. I'll try to send another email once we get to Lilongwe, but I wasn't sure what the internet situation would be there. Know that we are safely in Africa though. We're in Africa!!
