Arrival in Dubai - First Class!
I have arrived into Dubai and toured their incredible airport before securing a voucher for a free hotel room from Emirates Air both for tonight and for the return leg of the trip. The check-in person for Emirates in SFO was so gracious in upgrading me to Business Class for no charge which I was thrilled with. Wonderful reclining seat with all kinds of amenities and a scrumptious meal. When dinner was over I was settling in to a good movie when the 1st. class stewardess came by and asked if I wanted to move into 1st. class which of course I immediately did! 1st. class on this plane was unbelievable. I had my own private apartment with a big flat screen TV, an incredible bed and an amazing breakfast to go with my french press coffee. I watched three movies and still had enough time for reading and sleeping as it was such a long flight. It was the first flight I've had where I didn't want it to end. I could have flown around the world in that cabin. Quite a contrast to what I will be seeing in the IDP camps in Gulu in just a few days... Blessings to each of you who are praying for this trip.
