WE HAVE LIFT OFF!

So I’m sitting in my living room in Nairobi waiting for my taxi to take me to JKIA airport.  Within about 24 hours I should be landing in Ecuador – the location for film.  Having checked everything about 5 times, I was faced with that awkward period before you leave – the purgatory of travelling [...]
