After flying from Seattle to Amsterdam (1 hour layover) and then on to Johannesburg – nearly 24 hours without the internet – well, I did get some in as I ran from one gate to the other in Amsterdam – I made it to “Joberg” and the folks at the Food Safety Network.  I am looking forward to the two-day conference entitled “Farm to Fork to Court – Learning from Catastrophe.”

I am also looking forward to a safari later in the week and a South African Braai – more on that later.
