Homeward Bound

Delta 777It is official.  We are not Peace Corps Volunteers anymore.  Today is our Close of Service (COS) date and from now on will be referred to as Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCV).

After living in Africa for two years we are coming home.  Today at 1:20 pm, we board a flight in Gaborone to begin the long trip.  We will fly to Johannesburg on South Africa Airways where we have a layover and then we take Delta flight 210 that goes non-stop to Atlanta.  We arrive in Atlanta at 7:20 am.

Our good friend Jan, who dropped us off at the airport two years ago, appropriately will be the one to pick us up.  Since Granny is in the hospital and will be moving to a rehab facility, we will be staying in her empty condo for a few weeks and then with my sister, Marilyn.

See you soon !

    Safe trip and hope your relative gets better soon. Thanks for all you have done during your service. Fellow volunteers and Botswana citizens have greatly benefited. Personally the IT portion and teach Aids came handy.
    Best wishes, Juliet

    I’m sorry for the reason for your early return and hope that your Mom is doing okay. While this may not be the type of transition you expected upon your return, I can safely say that I KNOW you made a huge difference in so many lives in Botswana and you will not be forgotten. Those of us here, look forward to seeing you again!!!!! Hugs and safe travels to you both.

    I have greatly enjoyed your blog and trust you will also allow us to share in the experiences of your return to Georgia. I was surprised to see that there is a Delta flight direct to Atlanta. I’m headed out to visit Barbara the end of June and in all my searches for flights I never saw that there is a direct flight to Johannesburg from Atlanta. My flight takes me to London and then on to Johannesburg. Oh me!! I appreciate your work and will pray that your work in Botswana will continue to bear good fruit!
