It was a tiring journey after stopping in Dubai, but flying down to Entebbe after stopping of at Adi Dibbas in Ethiopia was an experience i will never forget. You really know you're not in western world anymore. After sitting next another traveller on the plane next to me we noticed the lush scenery of pure greenery and the dirt tracks and 'Booda booda, (which are motorbikes) we knew we were in Africa!! I had to get my visa and find my bag as i did worry after doing a connection flight, as you normally dont get your back apparently. I found the taxi ok and had a 3hr ride to Jinga in the car, the taxi had the front glass smashed good start for a taxi ride on my own in a completely foreign counrty! i was so tired though, but seeing the sights of Uganda was an amazing experience. I also let the driver try an english cereal bar he was impressed, admittly cereal bars i am gona miss!! I met the director of Soft power education his name which he likes to be called is 'Jibby' its not seplt like that, he explained to me the whole charity and what i would be doing. The accomadation is basic but has a mossie net and everything you need to have a good nights kip. I met three girls who travelled up the same time as me and a few years older we get on really well there in my group for tomorow , i think we're painting so the only clothes i have are gona get  real messy whooo!! then i had a shower and slept, not really a fascinating day but the end of a long flight and journey from saying goodbye at Heathrow airport, especially with geckos in the shower no England no more!!
