Hello Blog Followers,
Kelli here. We are all having a phenomenal time and our hearts are getting fuller by the minute. Everyone is very loving, welcoming, beautiful, and a true joy to be around - the travelers, too!! Today, several of us visited the local hospital and that was a very profound experience, to say the least. I was able to see a few of the babies in the nursery and they were so tiny and cute!
Also, I drove the van/bus for the first time today and didn't kill it once! (I did turn the windshield wipers on instead of the turn signal...but that only happened one time.) Driving on the left side has its challenges!
We are all VERY comfortable tonight in our wonderful Umlilo Lodge. It is a beautiful spot and we are all excited for the safari to begin tomorrow. I am glad that we will go on to visit one more school, though - I could spend the ENTIRE time visiting with the children - especially the high school learners. They sang "We are the World" and "Heal the Human Race" for us and I do believe that we were all moved to tears.
Jonah and Ellen are having a fabulous time - Ellen is enjoying getting to know the high school girls/graduates and Jonah and Adia get along very, very well.
So, all is well and good and we wish that you all may "Go Well" in the next several days until we meet again.
P.S. Have you ever heard the phrase, "Time is Jealous?" It's very cute and was used by one of the learners when we had to leave her school.
