Arrived in Kampala

After six hours on a bus, eight hours on a plane to Dubai, another six hours to Nairobi, a nearly missed flight, another hour to Entebbe, and many hours in airports… the Shantou U J-school Africa class has arrived in Uganda!

 The group has arrived (and more or less collapsed) at the Speke Hotel, a 1930s style outpost of elegance, in the center of Kamapla.

 Despite the exhaustion, spirits are very high. On the bus ride into town, there were cheers from the students at every sign with “Uganda” written on it.

And no wonder. Initial impressions are of a stunning country — green rolling hills over Georgia-red clay, with Lake Victoria always in the backdrop somewhere.

 We will rest and recover this afternoon, then begin to explore later today…
