I just woke up from four hours of sleep/listening to two of the other three guys in this room snore all night (one saws logs, the other one saws complete forests). I need some sleep. Late last night we flew into Entebbe, Uganda. While we were still at the airport in Entebbe I realized quickly that they do things a little differently than in the US. What tipped me off was the big African guy wearing a military uniform and carrying a loaded automatic rifle standing in the terminal telling us we needed to hurry up and move it along. Yes sir. After the airport & airplane experience, all I wanted to do was sleep. I wasn't able to, hopefully tonight. This morning we began our bus trip to Tanzania. Breakfast was great, the morning "Call to Worship" by the Muslims--not so much.

We stopped, while still in Uganda, at the equator. That was really cool. My favorite part of the stop was this really cute kid who looked like having his picture taken. There were a few shops there and I found a few things worth getting: A necklace with the Ugandan colors, a coaster set that is hand-painted with different animals, and some kind of stone that was cut into an interesting shape. I forgot what it's called, but I know the lady said it was a "love" something or other.

We finally arrived in Kayanga, Karagwe, Tanzania, forty-eight hours after I left home. I'm guessing, but I think our team has covered somewhere around 8500 miles. That's quite a trek in forty-eight hours. Update on our missing team members, they should be joining us in the next couple days! Praise God! I was so worried they wouldn't make it, and I'm so happy they are!
