It’s the eve of my departure and I am rushing around feverishly trying to make sure I don’t forget anything without really knowing exactly what I need! I have taken the approach that whatever I forget, the Ugandans can probably show me how to live without it.
As I mention in the title, the have been two new developments #1 I got engaged!!! My fiancé is a smart, funny, witty guy and I’m so excited to have found him. I never thought I would find someone that I loved this much and who is so awesome. #2 is a much more serious matter that is quite disturbing. I discovered, over casual dinner conversation on Monday night, that there is NO CHEESE in Uganda!!! Wine is also scarce. Craziness!! It seems so barbaric but apparently there is a bacteria called listeria (which has nothing to do with mouthwash- I asked) that can kill you or something so cheese is a total no go. I’m already envisioning the bacon bleu cheese burger that I’ll have at the Waterfront when I get back. Something to look forward to! Oh yeah AND seeing all these people again too!! 🙂
