Greetings from Camp Siloah in Neufrankenroda, Germany! As previously reported, the team arrived in Frankfurt in the late morning of Tuesday, June 26, after an uneventful flight from Orlando. Two personal duffels were missing upon arrival. The missing bags were reported to Lufthansa immediately, but by Wednesday evening, there was still no word on them. About an hour ago, we learned the bags never made it onto our flight! They were flown to Frankfurt today, but since it is a three hour drive to Neufrankenroda from Frankfurt, and only a two hour drive from Leipzig, bags are flying up there and will be delivered here probably Saturday. This is the first time ever that we have had bags go astray on a team!
By bedtime Wednesday night (June 27), all tents were up and covered with plastic, clothes lines up, kitchen up and running, and travel clothes washed. Team was ready to begin work, which commenced this morning (Thursday, June 28).The team is working so well and so quickly that Camp Siloah is already looking for other projects for them!
Weather was very nice when we arrived, but last night it poured rain off and on all night!
Our travel to Camp Siloah is our outstanding experience for this report. We saw an amazing sunset as we took off from Orlando. Also, the scenery we saw as we traveled from Frankfurt to Neufrankenroda was beautiful!!
