London and Starbucks Iced Soy Chai with an extra pump of Chai!

After about 9 1/2 hours of flying time Melissa arrived in London Heathrow and low and behold we found out that we’re able to text message back and forth! Of course this made Kevin and I very happy to know she landed safely after the first leg of her trip. Then shortly afterward Melissa sent a picture to us! Eureka, a Starbucks in the Heathrow airport! God was so sweet to let her have her last little bit of yumminess before she graduates to “Bush Tea”!!

She’s in the air right now on her way to Dar Es Salaam. We aren’t sure if she’ll be able to text from there, but who knows? Once she arrives in Dar Es Salaam she will change planes again and get on a Precision Air plane to fly the rest of the way into Kigoma, Tanzania. From what we understand it can probably be equivalent to an “E Ticket” ride at Disneyland…all you old timers will understand. And she was advised that when she was offered a snack…she might want to politely say, “No thank you.” But, he wouldn’t tell her what the snack was, just that he’s had it and his wife never has!! Hmmmmm, wonder what it is?


About Moqqi

I was born in the Midwest but I have actually lived more of my life on the West Coast. I am looking forward to that day when I once again am living in the Midwest. Hopefully that will mean that I am retired and getting to live life at a bit of a slower pace! I've been married to the same guy for 36 years! We met when he was working for a semi-pro hockey team and I was selling tickets to the games. He also played hockey at an amateur and college level and I think I fell instantly in love when we went ice skating together and he saved me from crashing when someone behind me fell (I was skating backwards, he was skating forward, so we were facing each other.) and he reached out with his big, strong arms and grabbed both of my upper arms and just stopped me dead in my tracks to make sure I didn't fall over the person. My Hercules! I have two children, a son and a daughter. My son is an Registered Nurse and works in an ICU. He is married to a wonderful girl that I couldn't have hand picked better. They have produced the absolute, most cute and adorable Grandchildren that anyone could ask for! My daughter is now a Fifth Grade teacher. She has a joy and passion for teaching and loving her students that is not seen in many teachers these days. She truly found her calling. I have this blog because I thought it would be nice to have a place that I could share what is going on in our lives and I also just love to tell stories. I'm not a writer per se, but I do love a good story. Even if it's just a short little quip!
