We awoke after a fitful sleep. We dressed and packed. Mauren brought hot tea. We went to the lounge tent and I tried to confirm our plane tickets, but the wifi timed out. I was also unable to refresh WordPress in hopes of getting my lost entries. I completed the survey card and gave them excellent ratings as we had done at the previous to locations.
We awoke from a restful sleep to a cloudy, gray morning. Zal had mentioned that it had been very dry this year, so a little rain was welcome. We showered, packed, and had a nice buffet breakfast of banana fritters, a cheese omelet and bacon before picked us up and took us to a small airport for our flight to Lake Manyara.
We arrived at Amsterdam’s Schipol airport literally at the crack of dawn. Even though our arrival gate and the departure gate for our next flight were both in Terminal E, it took some exploring to find a place to get some breakfast.
