Quick update. After a very long and tedious travel day, part of the project team is making an unplanned layover here in Johannesburg, South Africa. Due to a missed connection, we probably spent a good seven hours at the airport here unsuccessfully trying to get on any one-hour flight to our final destination. The good news is that most of our missing baggage, especially the ones containing the cameras, has been located. Also, part of the project team was able to get a connecting flight and is in Maputo now. I'm just now getting settled in my hotel room at the Southern Sun. We'll be back at the airport tomorrow morning.
What I can say to my family, and my community, is that the most important thing is love, not money. Sometimes they say that they donít visit us because they have nothing to give us. We need love, not things. Even with money you can still feel alone inside.
