Wow, I learned so much in one day of International Travel. I am Still in Florida, but headed to Atlanta. In Atlanta…I will step off the plane, go to Baggage Claim and meet Marvelous Valeria, and she will hand me my much needed Passport. Whew.
I can not describe how hard it is to board for Atlanta when your final destination is Lagos, Nigeria. it has a reputation.
Luckily, I do not look like a dangerous sort. I had a letter from the Elizabeth R. Griffin Foundation describing the work we want to undertake.
And One Hour and a half later, due much to hard work of Valeria, again, I was rewarded with a boarding pass to Atlanta.
And an introduction to the man in the middle, who apparently like me…is…. still single.
I’m in the orange. I sincerely hope that my teeth really aren’t that yellow looking in person.
Delta Airlines Rocks and Rolls. I am thrilled with the service, though exhausted.
Now we hope and pray for the passport exchange in Atlanta to go very well and for me to make my 11pm night flight out to Lagos.
Reassurring- I got FB communication from Iko Ibanga the Wonderful MD I worked with in Nigeria last time I was there. We may be meeting up. I feel a bit safer and cared for.
It is amazing how many times this trip should have been cancelled and wasn’t. As I told a friend, this is when a belief in God really helps. I’m forging ahead, assuming this is a completely blessed trip.
We will see. I am also remembering my past Nigerian experiences, and well.. I feel slightly cautious.
