This last week we had the opportunity to go to Wamena, which is where we will be living in November. It is just short of a mile high in the mountains and has no roads in or out. Everything there is flown in. We had our first MAF flight as a family which Gracie thoroughly enjoyed.
Rather than writing a bunch, the pictures will tell a good story of our trip. We are so excited to finally have a place to lay roots and call home.
|Although Gracie may appear to be scared or yawning she was absolutely excited.|
|Gracie looked outside for most of the two flights pointing out all the clouds to us.|
This is us taking off out of Wamena which is a pretty big airport. Not huge, but big enough to sneak in a 737. People have houses on the airport so when the kids get a chance they love to stand behind the planes and feel the the prop wash.
Below here are some pictures of Gracie and dad stretching there legs at a village strip by the name of Kobakma. We stopped there on the way back from Wamena. Gracie loved exploring...
|"Wow this runway looks steep I wonder if dad will chase me down it."|
|"I'm going to casually walk down it and see what I can find" Gracie said to herself.|
|"Ok time to hold dad's hand Gracie"|
After Gracie tried making a run for it...
|No! You caught me again dad!|
