Yoicks! and away!

Well, I am all packed. The trail meals are all made. siege is off doing his Driver's test and checking into insurance, and collinsmom is doing last-minute errands.

Time for a quick catnap. Then it'll be time to head out to the church and pick up the Crew. Then it's off to the airport (for a long, dull wait) -- but at least I can say, with Captain Smollet (as played by Kermit the Frog), "This voyage has begun."

My next post should be this weekend from Kigoma.

(P.S. Since Zanzibar is part of Tanzania, collinsmom asked if we could visit it. "Why," I asked, "do you want to meet the Zanzibarbarians?" Unfortunately, Gonzo, it ain't on the itinerary.)
