Michael Sharrock arrives in South Africa

Lauren Glenn and I left SFO on Tuesday evening for the first leg of our flight to New York JFK. The flight was about five and a half hours and got us into New York about 7:30 in the morning. We took the airtrain over to our terminal and got some breakfast. After waiting three hours, we boarded the plane and found great seats. We sat on the plane until we were told that there was a “slight technical problem” with the plane and we would have to get off until further notice. Shortly thereafter, I discovered that the “slight technical problem” was actually engine failure. After another four hours, we rebooked for a flight the next day and were driven to a hotel at JFK. We arrived at the airport the next morning and luckily there were no problems with the plane. We boarded, and fifteen hours and multiple movies later, we were in South Africa!!

Lauren and I met our families and went off with them. Lauren drove back to Polokwane, while I waited with Khanya for a plane back to his house. We took a small plane to Polokwane, and were met by his father at the airport. We came back to his house and after relaxing for a few hours, lack of sleep finally caught up with me and I fell asleep at 5:30. I woke up sixteen hours later and here I am.
