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 time...no... 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"!)
