Magnus, Per-Ove and Per-Ole, our team from Sweden, arrived around 5:00am at the Boma. After sleeping in, a great breakfast and loading our bags - our team met our trusty driver, Ben Kayemba at noon and departed for Mutukula (the border). We enjoyed our usual stop at the equator and then an enormous lunch. We were fueled for the next leg. (I think Magnus ordered too much pizza but no one was too sorry about it. i had never ordered pizza in Africa and was very happy with the delicious, fresh veggies. A treat.)
We met Brighton at the border late afternoon, introduced him to the Swedish team and headed to Kayanga. It was so good to see his face and broad smile. When ETI teams are on the ground we rely on Brighton for many things from the 30,000 foot view updates to the minor day to day needs. He is recuperating from knee surgery and we are glad he is doing well.
Finally - we arrived in Kayanga. Karibu! A warm reception from Bishop Bagonza and the ELCT Management Team. We got settled in our rooms - enjoyed a warm meal together --
and another day is closed.
