We have arrived! After a long layover at O'Hare in Chicago, and a unusually short layover in Brussels, we landed in Entebbe around 8:00pm. I was hoping for the sun to still be around, but that was not the case. It was nice to get to the hotel in Kampala around 10:00 instead of 12:30am!
After a smooth check-in, everyone's luggage got delivered to their rooms and we met downstairs. Violet had called in our pre-order of 10 plates of fish fingers & chips, and 8 plates of chicken and chips, so the food was ready soon after we sat down outside. Some members of our staff (Nicholas, Mariah, and Justus) were there with us. It's early now (around 7:00am); I love watching team members come down to the restaurant for breakfast on the first morning. The women are feeling awkward in their skirts and the men just want coffee!
We are heading to JInja at 9:00am and then we will be in Kainagoga all afternoon. Also on the docket - a friendly football (soccer) match with the Nakabango boys team! Stay tuned for those photos!
We are grateful for our families and friends who have kept us in their prayers during our travel - thank you!
