Where I stayed
College Inn, Wandegeya, Kampala
I spent the balance of the afternoon and evening writing, taking a nap, exchanging currency and wandering around town before I left for on the hour drive to the airport at 10:00pm.
I enjoyed the complimentary breakfast at the hotel in spite of a bout with travelers stomach… maybe it was the revenge of the betrayed chicken, but you can never know. I met Pinka for a planned meeting with the printers, but after a number of phone calls the manager was not able to meet because of a sick child at home. She suggested a meeting on Monday, but of course that would not work because I would be long gone to India. Pinka left for home at about 12:30pm after some extensive discussion about future plans and directions. I had a day in Kampala to kill to wait for my flight to Addis at 4:00am the next morning. In the midst of getting caught up on email, a huge storm with heavy rain and high winds blew through town and killed all the electricity for a few hours. Fortunately I was able to connect with Charles Mpagi whom I had worked closely with when with another organization and amazingly he was in town and just 2 blocks away from my hotel. We had time for lunch together and able to catch up with each other before he had to return to Jinja. Again, it was shocking to see the hand of Jesus in forming relationships with pastors in Africa.
