Life is good
After Flying high over the Atlantic ocean for what seemed like forever Uganda and the ground felt immediatly like home. Being eager to get my hands dirty like the little boy that I am, I have had to wait. the first week was filled with dressing up and going into meetings and fuctions for URF which in my mind isnt satisfying but we have opened many doors already that seem to be planting seeds for the future. U.N.I.D.O. and UN sub unit on development after a meeting with them has given us the ok today to start a waste management project at our school that will turn essentially waste\human animal and trash into bio-gas that can be used for many things cooking ect. and let me tell you there is a lot of waste in the world and a lot in Uganda. My tie has finally come off as of yesterday im glad to say and i have been planting beans and maze or corn, my hands are blistered and even with repeated sunscreen aplications the equator is taking its tole on my fair complextion. I wish you could see some of the pictures but you will have to wait in vain as i have left my computer in the village so my next post you will see what is going in full color. To my suprise my lugandan language came back to me very fast and the practice payed off,
peace and love love until next time
sorry for the spelling spell check doesnt seem to work in Uganda or atleast on this computer
