It is hard to tell when we started the day because we are wandering between different time zones. But our way back home started at International Airport of Kigali. Our colossal bag full of water samples and probes instigated security’s interest. They did even bring a dog to test our bags. After that, we had another security check which took us a long time to arrive at the departure lounge.
After a short layover at Nairobi, Kenya, we arrived to Amsterdam and had a 6 hour layover. I can feel everyone become excited by getting close to home. People get relaxed at the nice lounge of the airport in Amsterdam.
And finally after another 8 hour flight plus 3 hours of driving, we were back to where we began. We talked a lot about our thoughts during the trip on the way home and I believe everyone is growing, through the trip, through the reflection, and through seeing Newmark again.
