We were on our way to Africa via Istanbul with Turkish Airlines (why? you ask? cheapest tickets!) and got delayed. We missed our flight due to Turkish Air, so they put us up in Istanbul for 24 hours. What a delightful delay! A good night’s sleep instead of back to back long flights and a chance to see a bit of Istanbul. We didn’t have time to actually go inside the Blue Mosque or the Hagia Sofia museum, but it was a lovely day for sightseeing outside.
We arrived to Yaounde just before midnight Saturday, with all our luggage. We will take at least a couple of days for shopping, and will head to Gamboula probably by Thursday. Thank you for your prayers for our homegoing journey thus far. The long drive over some rough roads lies ahead of us. Thank you for praying for journey mercies for the upcoming trip.
