Wait, what day is it?
I've landed in Amsterdam, and met up with LaShaun, Nancy, Jen, and Cindy. Heard that Maggie missed her flight, and we're waiting for Tina and the others; there should be nine of us in our group. (edited: Tina was already in Uganda)
The flight from Seattle was nice, in that I had an aisle seat, and the window seat next to me was empty. I didn't sleep for more than a couple of hours at a time. I watched an episode of Parenthood, as well as The Iron Lady and The Hunger Games, in that order. When we landed I was surprised at how foggy it was/is here.
When I turned my phone on I saw that I had a text message from my 11YO; the message consists of eight red angry face emoticons followed by eight crying face emoticons. She's the one who phones to check up on me when I'm out of town. This trip won't be easy for her. I hope everything's okay.
I'm going to go walk around since I have to sit for another ten hours.
And now I'm in Uganda.
The flight here was fine but super long, and not enough water was offered to drink. I'm thankful I didn't get overly dizzy, and I did get some bursts of sleep.
We arrived at 11:pm, so the drive from the airport to the hotel was in the dark. Looking forward to tomorrow.
The Kampala Serena Hotel is awesome so far, lots of security and maybe the nicest room I've ever stayed in. Room service? Toasted cheese and tomato sandwich and a salad, please. In-room entertainment? KimPossible. That's right.
And now it's about 1:45 a.m. so I'm going to go to bed. Looking forward to the meetings tomorrow.
