Countless hours of planning, meetings, and preparation over the last several months has all been in anticipation of today: Departure Day. The team leaves Washington Reagan National Airport (DCA) for Douala International Airport (DLA) with connections in Montreal and Brussels. They’ll arrive in Douala on Monday night at 9:40pm WAT (EST + 6 hours, GMT/UTC + 1 hour) where the high is a balmy 88°F (31°C). They’ll be met by Julius, our trusty in-country guide/translator/price-negotiator/fixer/all-around-great-guy, and begin the next leg of their journey to Mbokop.
We’ll be keeping this blog updated as the team reports in, so check back here daily or follow us using the links in the right column of this page!
