My Africa Trip

I'll try to cover as succinctly yet comprehensively as possible. If you have any specific questions, though, by all means send 'em my way. OK, here goes for the inquiring minds...

Leaving Nashville, 7:30 AM CDT, Monday, July 20, 2009, Nashville Airport

Newark Airport (New Jersey), appx. 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM CDT, Monday, July 20, 2009

Brussels Airport (Belgium), appx. 1:00 AM CDT, Tuesday, July 21, 2009

Entebbe Airport (Uganda, Africa), appx. 2:00 PM CDT, Tuesday, July 21, 2009

One of the vans that transported both the team and all of our luggage (appx 88 pieces total) from the airport to the guest house.

Bedroom at guest house where we lived for a week and a half. Each bed was covered in mosquito netting.

Bathroom at the house. Western set up (sink, potty, tub & a shower stall). I equated the water pressure to that of an old man peeing. You couldn't get too much shampoo in your hair or soap suds going as there wasn't enough pressure to wash it off. We did use the water from the sink to brush our teeth rather than bottled water and I believe everyone was fine.
