Not bad after 36 hours of travelling

All the team met for the very first time on the plane in Sydney airport, narrowly missing the final call to board. This trip there is Corinna Catterill (a Community nurse from Tweed who is a wound clinical nurse specialist), Kathie Bontham Smith (a recovery nurse from Singleton hospital, who has experience in primary health care), Michelle Thomson (also from Singleton hospital: a Theatre nurse) and Tagisia Krouse who had volunteered with the Kenya health team on 2 previous trips. After 31 hours later we arrived in Nairobi after a 4 hour stop-over in Abu Dhabi. Our matatu driver had been held up in traffic so we had a further 2 hours wait, but did so in the airport cafe, relieved to be able to stretch our legs after such a long trip.

We finally arrived 5.30pm (1.30am Monday our time) to a wonderful welcome from all the children and an absolutely delicious meal of pumpkin soup, garlic bread, couscous, salad, eggplant dish, followed by baked cheesecake and a chocolate torte all prepared by Mary Budulica. Rolled into our mudhut around 8pm Yawn! No rocking needed!
