Day 1 - We were elated to know that our 18-hour flight to Africa, from Washington DC had finally concluded. Here is Kennard as we arrived at the O.R. Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg, South Africa. He is the first person in his family to return to Africa! This is only Tiffany's second time in Africa. She was also the first person in her family to return to Africa in 2003, when she visited Ghana. Kennard took this picture with a totally beaded elephant, such fantastic art work! We love South Africa. Amandla!

Thanks so much to you and Kennard for sharing your journey. Your photos and narrative are great, and I'm reminded of my own trip a few years ago. I visited most of the places you have been so far (except for the villages) - I found the museum in Soweto and the Apartheit museum as emotionally arousing as you describe, though my connections are quite different, of course, since I do not have African roots. (Though I suppose we ALL have African origins!) Your visit will bring important insights - I look forward to them (and to more photos). cb
