Halfway there!

We have almost made it to south Africa . Just another 10 hour plane ride, customs in Johannesburg , a 3 hour layover, a hour and half flight, and then a hour long ride to the resort! But it's all worth it! I was beginning to doubt it after our ordeal in the USA airport yesterday!
We had such a horrible experience in JFK yesterday....it was very discouraging, but once we got on the plane and slept for a little bit it was better.
Plus....will has a very distant cousin who lives outside of Zurich who was kind enough to pick us up and take us to her home ( we had a 12 hour layover in Zurich). I am so thankful for her kindness and hospitality. We seriously would be in a much worse state than we are now .
Her house was amazing and over looked Lake Lucerne. She let us swim in her pool, shower, have a traditional Swiss meal (complete with chocolate) and then we took a nap . Then it was off to the train station to get to the airport. I must say as frustrated as I was with Swiss air yesterday their country is beautiful.
We took a few pictures of her pool and view. We seriously debated about staying there for a week :)

We can't figure out how to post pictures so it might take us awhile.....pray for our safe flight!

I am so sorry about the airport experience in USA.That is not a good way to start a vacation. Hoping you have arrived safely at beautiful Zulu Nyala.
