We have arrived!

After a very long 9h and 45min flight from Amsterdam to Harare, Zimbabwe and then a 1-hour wait and the final leg to Lusaka (a short 40 minute flight), we landed at Lusaka International Airport a little bit ahead of schedule at a little after 10pm on Sat May 18! After 14 visa stamps in passports, we exited the airport to find Mr. Abel Mbewe and his driver Emmy waiting with a sign saying “Purdue University SLHS”! We had a nice bus which we are going to be traveling on for the next two weeks and Emmy will be our driver for the whole time.

A short bus ride to the lodge and then we got all our luggage and Clement gave us our room assignments and also helped a great deal with calling a taxi for the students who want to attend church tomorrow morning.
