Safely to Dubai

Big, beautiful airport. Can’t really say much else about Dubai. We have a five hour layover here before flying on to Nairobi.

Atlanta to Dubai was about 7,800 miles, and took 14 hours. Not the worst flight I have done, but but not a lot of fun.

The education began early; some of the students had not heard of a Great Circle route, and didn’t understand why we had to fly over Denmark to get to the Arabian Peninsula. I learned a few things as well, like the physiologic reason that salty foods taste less salty at altitude.

No photo–not enough bandwidth, apparently.
