Transfer day

Bucket loads of rain today. Being a transfer day we all worried that the plane would not be able to land. Rabecca is an experienced pilot for the Tanganyika Flying Company and has landed at the Mahale airstrip many times. When the plane touched down, Rebecca commented to our guests that the spray behind the plane would have made a great photo. Amber our Chef and Milton our Waiter were due to fly out for there well deserved days off, but because of the heavy rain and unusual wind direction Rachel decided to leave them behind to keep the weight of the plane low for take off. Poor Amber and Milton turned up back at the lodge and will have to wait another 4 days for the next plane. Let’s hope the weather is fine on Monday.
