In Kampala

Hey everybody. All of us are in Kampala right now and we've done a number of pretty fun and exciting things. Probably the most exciting day so far was Sandra, Austin, and Andrew's second day, the day of the Nigeria vs. Uganda FIFA Africa's cup qualifier match. Everything about it was exciting:
- Sandra and Danika wore Uganda jerseys, and caused everybody to stare at us all afternoon (in a really fun and friendly way... as if to say "thank you for supporting Uganda!")
- The taxi driver had to lie his way around police officers by saying that he picked us up from the U.S. embassy. We were running a bit late to the game.
- Uganda won the match... starting riots because it was the first time they won against Nigeria in any international competition.

Simply put, it was an amazing day.

On Sunday we visited the Baha'i temple and the Ndere cultural center. This was a lot of fun as well, but I'll let the other interns tell you about these experiences personally. I'll just post a couple pictures for fun.

In the meantime, we're all anxious to leave Kampala so that we can go serve at our internship sites. We'll keep you posted as much as we can! There's not too much internet access in Uganda. Thanks for reading!
