At last the Doctor has given us the go-ahead to fly and so we are on our way back to Gambia. All packed and ready to go, Ruth and John arrive to take us to Manchester to stay the night before the early morning flight. The weather has been unpredictable and so we leave at 2pm to avoid any chance of them getting stuck in bad conditions over the Pennines. A smooth journey and arrival at the Premier Inn, at Manchester, near to the airport: a grateful farewell. Dinner, then an early night.
