On the move in Uganda!

Over the past two weeks in Uganda, I've been on the move rather a lot. From 5+ hour bus rides, super sketchy boda-boda's, over crowded cars (5 seater with 12 people in it), or really really hot taxi's that run out of gas in the middle of no where! I'm currently back in Kampala after only leaving here less than two weeks ago which meant an hour ride to Lira on the back George's motor bike this morning at 7am, then a 5 hour bus ride from Lira to Kampala. Here are some pictures from being on the move, including your's truly this morning on the back of the bike!

Uganda week 1

This blog post took over 3 hours to upload! Anyways, here are a few images from my first week in the north outside of Lira. Still getting used to life out here but it's pretty amazing thus far without power, running water, and amazing people.

Come Let's Dance

The amazing people over at Come Lets Dance made my transition into Uganda as simple as possible. I really want to thank them again for putting us up for two nights and showing us around Kampala.
our only full day with CLD was the last full day of three of their volunteers. I tagged along with them as they made a final visiti to their children's home to say goodbye (for now). As tradition has it, the kids get to drench the leaving volunteers and it turned into a mass water fight. Good times were to follow.

Thanks again guys for helping us out, you're such a blessing and I look forward to my time with you early next week!

And I'm off...

In no order here are pictures from the last 2ish weeks I was in the states. Spent most of it in NYC where we got a crazy blizzard, got into a snowball fight in Central Park, met a new friend traveling to nyc for the first time in Central Park, watched the sunrise in Brooklyn from the roof....and then left for Uganda. I'll post more later but this took almost an hour to upload these pictures and i have to run. I'm currently in Lira in northern Uganda!
