I am finally in uganda
flying here was not the greatest experience
it just seemed like one, neverending, pretty miserable day
back to back 9 hour flights
with a 9 hour layover in a foreign country
plus a 5 hour layover in an african country (sketchhhhh)
plus a 2 hour bumpy insane drive from the airport to the village i live in
ALL BY MYSELF.
yeah, i just kinda told myself jeff was hugging me and telling me he loves me the whole time
because the random people in the foreign country sure didn't!
but i am here and it is WORTH IT!
so green, so lush, so beautiful
kids playing outside laughing and dancing
running up and hugging me as i walk by and shouting
"hi muzungu" (white person)
the people here are so kind and happy!
except for people at the airport- RUDE.
but everyone kept telling me id have major culture shock
but its pretty much what i was expecting
the only think i didn't expect was to love it so much so soon!
i already feel at home
and i just love it
the girls im living with are awesome. there are like 20 of us in a small little house
9 girls sleep in my room with me
the driving here is crazy!
there are ZERO rules.
every vehicle is like 2 inches away from 4 other vehicles at any given second
no such thing as pedestrian right of way
good food! i feel so cultured!
well i am out of time....more later! and hopefully pictures too!
