Dubai to Entebbe
We have not had any service until today. Here is a brief update with more to follow later. The photos above are leaving Dubai and flying to Entebbe Uganda, another 5 hour flight. If you look closely you can see the tallest building in the world. This was our best look as we did not make it there in person.
Entebbe to Kampala
We arrived safely to Uganda and spent some time getting through passport checks, getting through visas, finding all of our luggage and trying to fit the team in two separate vehicles. We the departed the airport to spend the night in Kampala about 1 hour away, but due to rush hour it took quite a bit longer. The photos above don't even begin to capture the traffic chaos that occurs. Imagine a two lane road with 4 lanes of traffic, motorcycles and pedestrians weaving in and out. It's amazing there are very few accidents.
Kampala to Koboko
Monday morning we left Kampala at 7am to start the 10 hour drive to Koboko. The trip ended up taking nearly 13 hours due to various things like tarping the luggage for rain, fixing a slow leak in one tire, and bathroom/snack breaks. We crossed the Nile River several times, saw some baboons and storks. Overall we had a nice long drive. More pictures to come.
Our First Koboko Day
We started by sleeping in a bit today with breakfast at 8am. Following breakfast we went to the KIDS Uganda site and met Camille who lives onsite and some of the staff. We unloaded lots of the donated items for this site and played a bit with the staff and a few kids before the big lunch meal. Again more pictures to come, but there were about 60 orphan kids that came to lunch. Karissa and our kids had great fun with them doing some crafts like making snow with baking soda and conditioner, cutting 6 sided snow flakes (we are all created unique by Jesus just like each flake is unique), making wordless book bracelets and singing some worship songs. We next went to a farmers market, but huge and quite varied compared to what we see at home. We ended today with another late dinner of rice and beans and hit the sack. More updates to come.
