It’s official! We just purchased our plane tickets to Mali. We found a great price flying on Ethiopian Airlines vs. Air France or Royal Air Maroc like we’ve done in the past. But it does mean we’re traveling 3,000 miles out of our way to get there. We’re flying all the way to Ethiopia then doubling back to Mali which will add 10 hours to our travel time. But the $1,000 cost savings will be worth it. It also beats the 8 hour layover in Casablanca that we’ve done on past trips.
We’re scheduled to leave just before midnight on July 11th and arrive in Mali two days later. As a reminder, we’re in Sothern California until our departure and we’d love to visit with as many people as possible before we leave. If you’re in the area, let us know when would be a good time to get together.
