Day 1

I haven't had internet connection, but I've been keeping a journal! Well my first day consisted of a 5 hour, 8 a.m. plane ride from Dubai to Entebbe and then a 5 hour drive from Entebbe to fort Portal! The drive was gorgeous!! The lands are so green, luscious, and rich! I slept most of the way, but I was still exhausted- I'm guessing it was my lack of sleep. We were escorted by police and the Prince drove us! (Just call me Princess Nina!!) We got to the hotel (which is beautiful!) and they were playing Akon, Enrique Iglesias, and Selena Gomez =) We went out for dinner and after the whole Lent (and some give ins) I finally ate chips/fries! Mmm =)
I've never worn so much insect repellent! There's so many people here that have gotten malaria and I'm freaking out! I just started taking the meds for it, but I was supposed to take it like 3 days ago. Whoops... =/
Everyone here is so nice! They all have a common goal- help the people of Uganda. They are driven and ready to get to work in order to help their people. I'm super excited to work with them!
Tomorrow is my first day of teaching computer classes! I'm nervous, but very excited! I'll be teaching basic computers to people of all ages.
