After being woken up by the front desk letting us know our taxi had arrived (good thing they called because our alarm was accidentally set to am instead of pm), we headed back out into the city for the airport -- it was much less busy traffic-wise, but there were still people selling things to passersby.
Since we already had our boarding passes, getting through the airport at 12:30am was pretty easy. We boarded our flight bound for LAX at 1:30 and took off. Whew! We're on our way home!
After running through LAX to get to my flight bound for SFO, arriving at SFO, being picked up by Nicole, and driven home, I am ready for bed.
What a wonderful trip I had. The last travel day was a mess, but well worth the rest of the journey. This was truly a trip of a lifetime and I am so thankful to all my coworkers at Cheesemans' Ecology Safaris for making the trip possible and enjoyable, as well as to all my travelmates for sharing in such an amazing experience.
