Being awoken by the sounds of the Uganda climate at 3am I realize just how much I have missed it. Thunderstorms, winds and rain welcome me to the capital city of Kampala. Only a few hours ago I landed in Entebbe and had no problem getting through customs with the help of a local named Joyce. The former customs agent guided us through the process of getting our visas. Gathering my nine checked bags full of medical equipment I realized almost every single bag was opened for inspection. I guess some medical equipment could raise and eye brow in the x-ray scanner but nevertheless all the bags have made it with only minor damage noted so far. Once all the bags were loaded into two vehicles we began driving the five hour trip to Kampala enjoying the local traffic and the sounds of a busy market. Flooded with the smells of fresh food and the exhausts of the under maintenance diesels we only stopped once to let the busy livestock After a welcoming dinner at a local five star hotel with the founder of Outreach To Africa, we returned to our bed and breakfast for one night of rest. In the late morning we will put our bags back into the van for the five hour drive to Fort Portal and the work beings. Evelyn has many plans for us including work at both clinics, assessing her donated ambulance from the UK, and a few days of traveling from the west to the east to fill an urgent need for eye exams. Working with the eye doctor I’m sure to pick up a few things while I’m here. Talking with Evelyn the ambulance needs a lot of mechanical work but nonetheless will be my project during my stay. Stocking, cleaning and teaching locals how to not only use the equipment inside but how to respond to emergent situations. There is a lot of work to be done and I feel only a short time to do it.
