We're Here!

After a crazy 30 hour flight in 2 days, which was weird considering the time zones, we finally made it! It is so beautiful here in Uganda. The City is full of buildings and motorcyclists. There is no real law enforcement, and the driving was a little crazy. This place is like a dream. I would have never thought. After we got to Brent and Virginia's sweet house (which is right on the shore of Victoria Lake) they took us on the shore to a tiny pizza shack and just relaxed. We are so tired here, that plane ride really took a tole. But it was so worth it to see the locals and their kindness. I'm serious, everyone here is so kind. We had two little boys hanging around our table with a basket of bananas on their heads. They just came from no where and watched us. They were really cute kids and just smiled and were thrilled when we wanted to take pictures of them. 
After that we walked back home watching fire fly's twinkling in the brush and listening to the minor key chants of the locals. Out of no where this sad song was being sung. 
This place is too beautiful and it's going to be hard to leave. But tomorrow we start the real work. I'm excited, and I think I will pass out of exhaustion. Good Night.
