Sunday in Africa!

We have enjoyed two wonderful days with the children of Hopeline! Today we return for their Sunday church service......and we are hoping the journey there is much better than yesterday!  Remember how I previously stated the drive to Mukono was about 45 minutes? ......well yesterday was Saturday and I had assumed the traffic would be lighter than on a work day......WRONG!!!! 

Kampala is the capital city of Uganda, but it is unlike any other capital city I have ever been in.  Last city I resided in without traffic lights was Slippery Rock PA.....a long, long time ago!  I'm not sure I have yet to see one traffic light here or stop just "go"!!!  Whether its your turn or not!  That being took us about 2 1/2 hours to arrive at our destination yesterday (and 2 on the return home!!) 

In Uganda, for the duration of our trip we have a driver.....George!  He is a very patient young man! Not only does he have the 5 of us to escort around, answer questions for and make as many of our requests appear as possible.....but he has to drive this "van" that so far has had a broken window, an AC unit that sounds like a machine shop when used(Even I need AC....this is Africa after all!!) and a far....minor bumps and bruises!  This is the only photo I have of him on this adventure to this point!  He saw me delivering the shirts I brought from my church in Las Vegas and asked so politely if he could have one.....of course you can George!

More to come later...don't want to be late for church!!
