Madagascar still traveling-Mission trip

Greetings from Madagascar!!!! We have finally arrived here in the capital city (Antananarivo) early this morning (Thursday 7/15/10). It was a long journey to the notorious land of the lemurs and the journey is not yet over as we have a few more days of driving before we get to our project site and home for the summer (Vangaindrano). After commissioning we had a late bus drive to Miami International Airport where the team was able to indulge themselves in all the ice cold drinks they could afford after 2 weeks of Boot Camp and warm cool-aid. Our flight out of Miami was not until 5:30pm, June 12th. We arrived in Paris, France around 8:30 am on the 13th and made our way into the city to the hotel we would stay in for the night. Our one disappointment was that Desiree, our leader from Madagascar, was unable to travel into Paris with us due to a visa issue. The team slept most of the day in the hotel only waking for lunch. In the evening we all took a walk through the cobblestone streets of Paris to a beautiful park by the name of Parc Des Buttes Chaumont. We had a picnic dinner in the park and spent the rest of the evening walking around the park. We left early the next morning to the Paris airport, reunited with Desire and waited for our flight which was delayed an hour and a half. So again, we have finally arrived in Madagascar and all the team is in good health, save a few stuffy noses and jet lag. Please keep us in your prayers as we travel two more days to our project site. You are all in our thoughts and prayers! God bless!!
