July 18, 2009: We're off!

Well, the adventure begins! I left Perth 10:30 last night and am currently in Dubai waiting for my connection to Nairobi. When we arrived in Dubai at 5:30 in the morning, the temperature was a chilly 34oC (93F) - quite a contrast to the winter in Perth, but a good acclimatisation to the Kenyan weather. Received emails from Tim, Raymond and Gustavo in the last few days, who all seem to be excited about the expedition too, with their travels beginning soon. A couple more hours of time to kill at the airport, then off to Africa. Better run -- got to do some duty free shopping. Until next time.

Cool, glad you got there safely. Don't forget the Duty Free shops when you're thinking of your loyal comrades back in Perth!

Cheers, JB

So Bronwyn, was that 34 degrees on a calibrated instrument? Claims of global warming will have no credibility if the instruments cannot be trusted. We expect that all future environmental readings will be accompanied by reference to the calibration records and control charts. My calibrated skin tells me that it has finally stopped raining here and the sun is shining. Send us some photos of mangroves restored!
