Flight woe

This is minor stuff compared to what others are going through, I realise, but I am going to tell you about it anyway. My flight from Addis Ababa (Ethiopia) to Juba (Sudan) failed to take off yesterday; the plane had come in about half an hour late from Djibouti and that made it too late for them to get back from Juba to Addis before dark.

So we were all booked into a decent enough hotel and given dinner vouchers etc, and warned to be ready for aq 0730 departure this morning. I woke up at 1 am and couldn't get back to sleep.

At 4 am they called and said the flight will be further delayed, so we should stay put. Aaargh. I shall try and get some sleep now.

Looking ahead, I do hope that the air has cleared sufficiently by the weekend for me to get home form Africa on something like the original schedule...
