It’s been a week already since I arrived in Uganda. My journey started in Entebbe at 3:30 A.M. last Thursday when I landed at the country’s only International Airport. The sole passenger in the building, roughly the size of the train station in Ottawa, Canada, I sipped coffee at the airport cafe until sun appeared on the horizon. Somehow during the time I spent at the airport I managed buy a SIM card for my phone and even caught up on some correspondence.
