The travel to Ssese island was our first encounter with the concept of Ugandan time.. The ferry was scheduled to depart around 2-3pm; however, after a few delays, the ferry departed at roughly 6pm. This is common in Uganda, they work on their own time. We spent almost five hours sitting at the port waiting for the fuel truck to arrive as we were early to purchase our tickets for the ferry. Once aboard, the ride was great. And on the plus side, we got to watch the sunset during our travels on the ferry. We also learned a local card game called Donkey which was a lot of fun! We spent the following two days on Ssese islands, which was very beautiful! Unfortunately, it is rainy season so we ended up with very rainy mornings, but the afternoons were clear which gave us the opportunity to hang out by the pool. Ssese islands are situated on Lake Victoria, which was a 3.5-hour ferry from Entebbe. The food was awesome at the resort and the pool was very refreshing. My coloring book was a hit with some of the local girls on the ferry traveling back to Entebbe. We start training next week in Mbarara, so we have the rest of this week free. Rayden and I are going leaving to go GORILLA trekking tomorrow. The trip is three days, two days of travel and one day of trekking. I AM SO EXCITED! 😊
