MIRACLES ALL THE WAY!
You may remember our dramas about being diverted to land our little bird at Johannesburg International Airport. Not looking forward to returning to Mozambique through the same route, we were delighted when all airports were opened again and we would be able to return in the normal way.
Cyclones and rain delayed us a few more days, then came the news that the restrictions on airports were being reimposed the following day. We saw a one day gap in the sky and packed up our plane to take off early in the morning in hopes that we could make a get-away without anyone stopping us. It was really a no-brainer. We knew that only pilots were cleared to use the airport, flying goods in and out. Rod could get out but not Ellie. More bad weather, fully booked international flights and intensified covid-19 lock downs could delay us for weeks. We needed a miracle!
