Heading to the Airport

In just over an hour I will be heading to the airport for the long journey home from South Africa.

Last night while on the way to the shopping centre I saw a sign that required me to make another trip there today.
Book Sale, Friends of the library, Sandton, South AFrica

I saw that there was to be a book sale at the Sandton Library organized by The Friends of the Sandton Library. Of course, I had to check it out. I am involved with the same activity back home and wanted to see how they were set up.

They  were set up very similar to how we organize a book sale. I took a good look through all the books and found way too many that I could carry home with me on the plane. I finally settled on a handful of books to carry home with me. More on these in a later post.

The Sandton library has a very interesting setup and it will be the subject of a later post as well.

Mandela Square, Sandton, Johannesburg, South Africa

The library is on Mandela Square so I also had to go take a picture of the giant statue of Nelson Mandela.

I then headed back to the hotel to get ready to go. I have a few more things to pack and want to take a quick shower so that I am fresh before embarking on about 22 hours of time on airplanes over the next 30 hours.

Plane Spotting, Lufthansa Senator Lounge, Frankfurt

The first segment from Johannesburg to Frankfurt will be on a Lufthansa 747 and then I will be on a Lufthansa 380 from Frankfurt to San Francisco.

I am not looking forward to all the time on the plane, but it will be good to be home.
