Eating our way to Kenya

November 28, 2011

Consider this the (long) intro to our trip, if you will. Our flight to Nairobi via Istanbul didn’t leave from JFK until nearly 11 pm, so most normal people would accordingly book their flight from Atlanta to NY so that they had a decent enough layover to account for weather, transit between Laguardia and JFK, […]
