Day 1 Travel to The Gambia
Pippa, Mo and I had an early start at Gatwick for our flight to Banjul. We were through security fairly quickly and met David and Regina for breakfast. The flight was about thirty minutes late leaving –something to do with the luggage being unbalanced. Anyway the flight was uneventful. Thankfully the flight wasn’t diverted to some exotic airport to refuel so arrived in Banjul more or less at our expected time.
We were met by Abdoulie and Yankuba with their huge smiles. Wandifa was not there. He was at Banjul port sorting out the paperwork for the container which we packed in September (it seems ages ago) but only arrived in Banjul on 4 November.
After a very good dinner at the hotel cooked by the new chef, Jacques, from Senegal we all retired early.
