We flew safely to Uganda where our driver, Abdul, picked us up and drove us to the capital city, Kampala. We arrived at the hotel 5:30am. We unpacked and waited until 7am when we went to breakfast – I as hungry and ate pancakes, eggs, toast, passion fruit juice, croissants, and muffins. At 9am we were picked up by Abdul and drove to the source of the Nile in Jinja. On the way we stopped at a waterfall where we took a little tour. We took a boat ride out onto the Nile to an island near the river’s source. Next, we waded out into the river to get to the exact spot where the river begins to flow. Back in Kampala, we went to an awesome Indian restaurant called Khanna Khazana.
It feels so amazing to be back here, to be with the people, to see the sights, to smell the smells. It feels way different from last time. It feels more familiar instead of being totally foreign. My brother is probably feeling what I felt last time. Now I feel like one of the pack, part of the group. It feels like a home away from home. I feel happier and more relaxed than I have felt in awhile and can’t wait for all I’m going to do this week.
