I guess it should come as no surprise that we didn't arrive in Uganda exactly as planned. Last year's Uganda team got laid up in Turkey, before finally reaching their destination. We were not much different this year. We had many flight delay notifications in Montreal and then Brussels. We got there 10 minutes before the Brussels plane left for Entebbe, Uganda, via Rwanda, but it refused to wait for us. What was our solution? Why, it was of course to have a Stella Artois. :-) First though, I thought it would be fun to have a snowball fight, mostly because it was fun to have people look at us like we were from Florida, or had never seen snow. Also, we felt slightly guilty of having the Brussels stamp in our passports, with never really touching soil.
OK, so on our way to Uganda now.....oh, but via EGYPT. What the?? So long story short we were in planes and airport for about 26 hours. Would I already do it again to come here? In a heartbeat, and our journey has barely begun. :-)
Will write more tomorrow.
