Arrival in Zimbabwe!

Hi Family:

We arrived Monday afternoon in Harare.  The flight from Johannesburg to Harare was 10 and a half hours.  It was brutal, but we made it.  We have met the Bullocks, the couple we are replacing.  They are very nice and we have spent the day with them.  We have been grocery shopping and working in their/our office.  We are getting up to speed and finding out about water projects among other things.  Our apartment is interesting, but has a very nice yard with a patio.  It is quite cool here and the apartment doesn't have heat, but they assure us summer is on the way.  Zimbabwe is quitte a bit drier than Uganda, but is still quite pretty.  So far all is well, except we are suffering from a little bit of jet lag.  We will be doing some projects in Malawi and Zambia so this should be intersting and fun.  We miss you guys TERRIBLY!!!  We will send more information when we get set up with our computer.  We just wanted you to know we arrived safely and miss you.

  1. You guys are too much! I'm so glad I got to see you, Sandy, on your brief sojourn in the States. I'm staffing a mission to Haiti next week to see what impact the Jewish Federations' contributions have and and what (besides everything) remains to be done. I have thought of you often while preparing for the trip, even though it will be only three days! I look forward to reading your blog and following your new African adventures. Best wishes to you and Roy, Gail Gordon
