Journal from the Ground
by Kelly Craft and Kari Krakow
From Ithaca to Aceh
Kelly and Kari leave for Aceh today. Peter,
Kari's husband, volunteers to drive them to Newark Aiport, about 5 hours
drive from Ithaca. Peter's car is full with boxes of
donated school supplies and toys. They stop at Mazalan's house where
they are met by Aceh Relief Fund personnel who brief them with the
latest situation in Aceh and other matters related to their trip.
Finally, they depart Ithaca for Newark at 1:30pm.

and Kari's journal entry as soon as the entry arrives at ARF.
