Inauspicious Beginning

Hm, so far my big trip has gone like this.

-Two nights "sleeping" on airplanes.
-No one at airport holding a sign with my name on it, so I caught the hotel shuttle.
-At hotel, my name wasn't at the front desk so the receptionist worked out that I wasn't going to finish my freelance today and go to a reception tonight, that was last night that the group stayed at the hotel (who knows why they booked me to arrive the day after) and I was due to get in a van and go on safari in an hour. And then said it was $25 for the hotel shuttle and $18 for breakfast. I talked my way out of the $25 charge and decided to go hungry.
-The shower by the swimming pool opens at the same time my van leaves.
-My bosses are all going to kill me for not getting my work done today and then being out of touch for a week. I wouldn't be surprised is at least one of them fired my ass.
-I'm pretty sure I stink. I wouldn't mind brushing my teeth and changing my clothes. I'll go do that in the ladies room as soon as I finish uploading some files. Wonder if the wifi works in the ladies room. I bet it does! I always enjoy taking a sink shower and changing my clothes in the public ladies room in a fancy hotel. Now is my big chance.

Other than that, Nairobi looks much the same as it did in November.

AWA. Africa Wins Again.

Sounds like one of those good stories retrospectively ... once normal services are in some way resumed.

Good luck :)
