Landed At Johannesburg Airport

Hey mum,

They have allowed us to email home for 30 mins. The plane ride was awesome, especially the take off as we went so fast, it was awesome, the plane ride was long and boring, I hardly got any sleep, we had quite a bit of turbulence, it was really bad at one point they let us out of  the seat belt, that was exciting. 

10 minutes into the flight they came round with a drink which was good cause I was thirsty. then about 1 hour into the flight they brought us round a hot mean which was OK, I had honey mustard chicken. then in the morning I had a full English breakfast which was only a sausage egg and bacon, it wasn't very nice.

 I was sat next to elder Riley, I tried to get Conner next to me but couldn't do it. then came the landing that was exciting, I wish I had a window seat cause it looked amazing from windows when I went to the toilet. 

Johannesburg is such a magnificent and beautiful country. the descending was a weird feeling. so we got off the plane and got a shuttle bus from aircraft to the terminal, we went through customs which was OK cause no problems. I was in the same cue as elder Stilgoe but quite a way back, then they opened a new line so we beat him through customs.

We then made our way to the conveyor belt and both my suitcases came through which I was really happy with, then we made our way to the part where I had to declare things, but didn't have to. 

We then made our way out to the arrivals where someone was holding our sign up, we got out name badges there which was cool, we then  made our way to the MTC which took 40 minutes, when we got there we got our rooms, but don't know who my comp is yet. we then had to do paper work and get injections. and now emailing you. 
  I love the mission and the country its poor but beautiful.

  will email you when I next can

  Miss you Mum
