Kamp-A-Long Day!

May 26, 2010

It is my last night in Kampala!  Nathanial and I spent the day catching up on sleeping and reading and keeping up with blogs here at the hostel.  Then Sempa, who works at the main Nyaka office in Kampala, picked us up and took us to his home for a home cooked dinner by his […]

Football!

May 24, 2010

Our new buddy Stephen who works at the Nyaka School and will be joining us in Kisiizi to work on the construction program with me was driving us around Saturday, running errands.  When we were done he turned to us and casually asked, “Do you want to go see a football match?”  Uh…YEAH! It was […]

Aero Beach

May 24, 2010

Another random outing with the assorted crew from the hostel took me to the beach yesterday.  We went to Aero Beach near Entebbe on Lake Victoria.  While I originally wasn’t going to go I decided it would be more interesting than sitting in the hostel all day and it surely turned out to be quite […]

I love the nightlife, I got to boogie…

May 23, 2010

There’s so much to tell since last I blogged!  This post, therefore, shall be the sum-up.  I will write additional blogs on my other experiences so that, faithful readers, you can decide how many of my misadventures you actually want (or feel begrudgingly obliged) to dredge through.  Just try not to end up like Artax. […]

It’s tomorrow!

May 21, 2010

Well, it’s tomorrow.  My first night was definitely interesting.  Nathanial and I landed around 8pm (Nathanial is a fellow Clinton School Student and will be working with the same organization however in a different capacity).  My bags were (still are) lost.  It was surprisingly easy to get a visa and go through customs.  Our driver […]

Uganda

May 20, 2010

I’m in Africa.  Uganda to be exact.  Kampala to be exacter. Like any stereotypical ‘merican, I went straight for the intertron.  This mostly had to do with the fact that my bags were lost (of course) and I have no towel or change of clothes and thus after 20 hours of travel cannot shower.  Nor […]
