First things first:  HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Nick!  Love you A+F! 

It is with great anticipation that we will be leaving in a few hours for a journey I have been looking forward to for a year and a half!  So much to learn and lots of unknowns, but isn't that the whole purpose of exploring the world and heading into a journey of discovery - an unveiling of not only a country whose history may cause some consternation in a traveler but also the divulgence of forgotten parts of your soul?  I welcome the disclosure! 

We fly into London to connect with our flight into Entebbe, arriving at @8:00 AM, Zulu really...Zulu time!  The plan is to head to the equator and get a taste of this country that, despite its distracting history, presents some tantalizing possibilities.

Paraphrased, Neale Donald Walsh said that true life begins when you step over the edge into uncertainty - "Life begins at the end of your comfort zone."  Uganda, be patient with me as I step over the edge into your country straight out of my cushy, secure, predictable, and certain little comfort zone!

"Safari njema"  to us all!   (Swahili for "good travels"!)
