In just a few hours we will be leaving for the Dakar airport and then soon we will be flying home to the US for our three-week Christmas vacation! As you can imagine, we are very excited.
We left Cap Skirring on Sunday afternoon and traveled to Dakar by boat. We sailed for about three hours on a river and then all night on the ocean. The boat trip was pretty bUmPy this time!
We’ve enjoyed these last few days here in the capital, visiting with missionary and Senegalese friends we haven’t seen since we were both in Dakar at the same time — – nine months ago! It’s been great catching up with some people before our trip home.
Here are some pictures of our “GOING home FOR Christmas JOURNEY” thus far:
Time to rest for a bit (ok, that probably won’t happen), eat a bite (leftover salad + a chwarma), and finish packing before heading to the airport in a few hours for the loooong trip home!
Love your friends,
Ps – Listening to this Christmas song as we pack.
