The travel back home

*The edgy way home-excitement!*

semi-overcast 16 °C

Going back home was better than the 1st time. Now we knew where we were going and all, we were more relaxed. The 1st thing I had to do was go and sell my bike to Ashik from India. He did not turn up so out of faith I left the bike there for him and later sent him and email of instructions...trusting in God that Ashik will be honest and deposit my money. God never disappoints; the guy did just what i hoped for! :D

Tuija came to pick us up and take us to the airport (God bless her) and we got there on time. We were even early! And it was snowing when we got to the airport. At security control they threw away most of my poor toiletry because they were more than the 50ml they allow :(. We flew from Kuopio to Helsinki within an hour, from there we took some crazy pics:

From there we took a flight to Istanbul, Turkey. On the flight i took some pics when airborne:

We had to wait FIVE hours in Istanbul, Turkey. We anticipated that it was going to be way too long but it was actually better than we thought. We tried to get out of the airport to see the city but it was not allowed for non-diplomatic people :(. The 5 hours passed very quickly as we sat for a while, walked around and even went through shops there. The flight left Istanbul at 23:20 and we were already tired...BUT when we got in and saw the fancy LCD screens in front of each seat I was excited and decided to watch movies! hahaha....

From here we arrived superb in South Africa, no turbulence thanks to the Lord. We arrived in Cape Town at past noon October 31st and I saw Monty waving anxiously as I passed to go to the passport control! :D I remember during the bag collection we took some pics and some security guy called Sipho to delete the pictures! hahahaha!

From the airport Monty & Kgosi took me to a restaurant and we ate some good Thai food. It was so great to be back home...and my Monty and I did not even know how to act because we missed each other so much....
