Arrived at home around 10:30 AM having left Joburg a little late Sunday evening. The flight to Washington, DC stops at Accra, Ghana, for one hour for fueling. Passengers going through to DC can't get off the plane, but many left in Accra and were replaced by other going from Accra to DC. Total time from Joburg to DC was about 19 hours. The plane was late arriving as the pilot announced that there was a substantial headwind. We had a great experience at the Washington, IA
Tomorrow evening we should be in the air on the way to DC and then Cleveland after 83 days of traveling around the world. After our last flight, we will have made a total of 25 different flights.

We have seen about 400 species of birds, our favorite still is the rhinoceros hornbill in Borneo.
