Accompanied UsBest road trip ever to Uganda.
Hairstyle the handiwork of 4 sisters and her mother
What are the odds that just as you and your Land Cruiser full (as in 4 people on the back seat, 3 grown men on the middle, and 3 of us in the front) happen upon a bend in the rutty, bumpy, dust road under construction - just as a large excavator (crane-type shovel) operated by a frustrated Chinese construction worker, would dig a channel crosswise in the road, making way for a large culvert? Seriously - what are the odds? I took one look and knew we would be delayed for quite some time. In Africa, I accept these things. In the U.S.- not so much. I did not like the cavalier attitude toward the on-lookers and the way the operator challenged them with the big machine. I also wondered what in the world the onlookers were thinking so close to the machinery. Photos show how different things can be in a country sans sensible safety measures.
Brighton and crew saw us through the border at Mutukula, and Ben met us to drive us to Entebbe. We had a beautiful lunch in Masaka and then a pleasant drive to Entebbe with the
touristy stop at the equator.
Goodbye to Jay and Pedro
. They will move on to their other U of MN agendas in Uganda. Goodbye to Ben, our trusty driver. Great progress was made on KARUCO. It is not possible for me to be happier about all that has transpired with the university.
Goodbye to Africa for now.
