Part II with Pete O’Neal

Headed towards Cape Town, South Africa

Well, today we are leaving beautiful Tanzania – we’re headed towards Cape Town, South Africa.

Today I left for Africa! Unbelievable!

Today I left for Africa! Unbelievable! I can’t believe the time has arrived! I’m incredibly excited! I’ll be flying out of Mpls and heading to Amsterdam. From there I fly to Tanzania- first to Kilimanjaro, and then on to Dar Es Salaam, the capital city.
