Day 1: Arrival

3.40am start. Carried bags to the taxi through the snow. 
11 hours later and 30C warmer Ian and I were met by Pippa, Wandifa and Abdoulie at the airport -no problem getting through customs with all our science teaching kit thanks to Pippa's hard work behind the scenes. Our landing was delayed by a sand storm restricting visibility of the runway. The pilot aborted landing and went round again.

We are now settled in – had drinks by the pool while watching 12 vultures hanging and wheeling in the onshore Atlantic breeze. 
Tomorrow I think the plan is to visit some schools/students-Pippa has already seen loads.
