We safely arrived in Entebbe Africa around 10 pm local time after flying for roughly one full day and all most non stop….Ottawa to Toronto…Toronto to London…and London to Entebbe!!!! It really was a whirlwind. Stepped of the plane on the tarmac as was greeted with warm humid Africa air…felt good after our Canadian winter!!!!
Our driver last night was a great guy named John…he picked us up in a diesel ¼ ton Nissan crew cab truck…and we were off to Kampala and the hotel….roughly 45 minutes away. He was a great driver and we felt very save with him.
This evening we will meet with Richard who is the regional director for the credit unions in Masaka. He will provide more specific information about the credit unions we will be visiting over the next two weeks. We look forward to meeting him and learning as much as we can about our work here in Uganda.
Winston Churchill once stated that “Uganda is the Pearl of Africa” and from our experiences so far I would have to agree with him!
