Log Entry: 10/4/18 Kampala, Uganda

The weather is is great, cool at night and in the mornings. Temperatures are around 80 at 10:00 am and very nice in the shade. I’m having fresh pineapple for breakfast with my coffee.  Now don’t you wish you were here?

But in the spirit of full disclosure, I had my first COLD shower this morning.  I don’t remember the water being quite so cold, brrrrrrrr!  I was doing the Hokey Pokey for sure.  You know the kids song:
You put your right foot in
You take your right foot out
You put your right foot in
And you shake it all about
You do the hokey pokey
And you turn yourself around
That’s what it’s all about (or rather that’s how you take a cold shower.)

Maybe we really did learn all we need to know in kindergarten, hummmmm.

Moving on. To help save words in this post and probably all future posts about this trip, I will be using the abbreviation TIA which stands for This Is Africa.  It basically means “We are not in Kansas anymore, Toto.” so don’t even try to make sense of it with your western mind. 🙂

We are going to try and get all my stuff done today; exchange money, get a SIM card for my phone and buy my malaria drugs.  I truly know I’m in Africa now because I was told that we would be leaving in about 20 minute.  That was about an hour ago. TIA.

Well I got everything done and thought my day was complete.  But upon arriving back I found out that we will be leaving this afternoon to travel to a small town called Aduku which is about four hours to the northwest.  That means we will be traveling at night which is always something of an adventure in Africa (and this trip will prove to be no different).
