The South Africa group is en route! After a 5:00am departure from Farmington, they arrived at JFK with time for some food (apparently lots of Shake Shack!) and rest before boarding their South African Airways Flight #204 for Johannesburg. Sarah and Cate reported that everyone is feeling good and very excited to start their journey.
The group is due to arrive in Johannesburg tomorrow, Saturday, January 11th at 8:59am local time which is 1:59am Eastern Standard Time. I will update this blog once the group has arrived in South Africa.
