As I am writing this, Chris and I are onboard an Air France plane to Chad. We are over Northern Africa, about two hours away from landing.
We have a busy next couple of days in N’djamena coming up. We have to connect with the different agencies and organizations that will make it possible for us to get to where we want to get, the camps on the border with Darfur. We made some initial contacts through email, but some of it will have to be done in person. Three of the main contacts we have to make are the UNHCR, WFP, and the government of Chad. Some of the major NGOs working in the camps also have offices in N’djamena, so we’ll go visit.
They have not stopped feeding me in these flights. I guess I can use the extra stored fat to take me through the leaner days ahead.
