Well, I made it back home late Sunday night after many different modes of travel: bush plane from Mombo to Maun, jet from Maun to Johannesburg, 3 planes from Johannesburg to Houston, and then a cab ride to the house. Or should I say ghost house. It was so late in the evening that I just got home and crashed. Leslie and the kids are over at her parents' house, as they have electricity and A/C. We sort of have power, but not enough to get the needed 220V to operate the A/C. So now I have joined the other family refugees and am over at Leslie's parents' house as well. Hopefully we will have acceptable power in the next few days, but my gut tells me to not count on it. Hospitals, city buildings and main lines take first priority. Since our street has power, we are considered a specific house call, and that is way at the end of the line.
I appreciate all emails and phone calls for those who are checking in on us. We very much appreciate it. I don't anticipate posting any images from my Namibia and Botswana adventures any time soon, as I am too busy with the aftermath of the hurricane. I am, however, planning on launching Gura Gear as soon as humanly possible.
