We all assembled at Pearson International Airport at around 7:00 pm local time, endured the vagaries of the automated check-in machines, and made our way through security. After reaching our gate, folks dispersed to get snacks and coffee. We had an uneventful 7 hour flight to Amsterdam, arriving 50 minutes early! Interestingly they brought our Toronto plane into the gate that was immediately best to the flight to depart for Nairobi – the an easy connection, and then another 7 hour flight to Nairobi. We arrived at about 10:00 pm, and after we made our way through customs were met by Mukhtar of Bunduz Outfitters – a relatively short truck ride later and we settled into Kolping Guest House and its pleasant grounds.
