We have arrived in São Tomé
Wed March 28 - To São Tomé: I left the Sunset at 10AM packed for my first expedition to Africa. At SFO I met Jim Shevock, the CAS bryologist and Miko Nadal, a SFSU/CAS grad student studying lichens. After three flights, two layovers, 34 hours of travel, and no sleep we arrived in São Tomé at 06:00 (Fri March 30). We tried very hard to stay awake to readjust to the new time zone, we all failed and passed out shortly after we arrived in our rooms.
