Our Flight to Kurungu

On Friday, March 6, we left for our up country visit to Kurungu, Kenya. The trip was part of our orientation to Africa and a chance for us to see what life is like living outside of Nairobi. It was a chance to see how our role with AIM-AIR fits into working in an upcountry location.
Note: This was also the second time for the kids and Breanna to cross the equator, and the first time for all of us to do it in a light airplane.

Enroute the HF radio wasn't getting through to base for a position report, so the next option? Texting in the location with a cell phone

Sitting in the passenger seat... for now
Typical neighboorhood in the middle of nowhere.
