Today we took a rest day in Bucharest – capital of Romania.
Time to see a bit of the city and plan for the next steps of this journey.
Beautiful old city with good bread and good coffee – I think that says a lot about a place.
A Palm Sunday parade.
We have been so fortunate – in our years of travel – witnessing celebrations of Palm Sunday and Easter. Last year for example, we were in Luanda, Angola on Good Friday – where we came upon a march of thousands of people and the most amazing singing. Other years we have been in Central America – and again – just wonderful outward expressions of this important time.
Tomorrow we are on the road again – on our way to Aqaba, Jordan.
As we have travelled we have gotten many curious and positive comments from folks at the airports about the Kodiak that we are flying – they often come out- take pictures and want to know more about this plane.
Such a great aircraft. It has a pretty interesting beginnings. It was built and designed for missionary and humanitarian organizations – so with that in mind – it has the capacity to work in some harsh environments. For example, the Kokiak is able to get in and out of tight spaces – and it has a shorter fuselage and wingspan so it is able to hand and turn around in a smaller footprint. So essentially, this plane is able to land on the side of a mountain in a narrow strip of cleared jungle or in the case with this plane – a remote river or lake – with a full load of supplies.
Pretty neat story.
