Back to the Netherlands soon?!?

Today was a day of (for now?) the last time. For now with a question mark. It is probably temporary because there is a good chance that we will come back here. To be sure, we will soon rest, pray and decide. What happened last time today (for now)?

  • Sleep in “our” house.
  • Drive to the children’s village to see if the grass planting went well (they don’t have grass seed here!)
  • Getting stopped by the police on the road without doing anything wrong
  • Be nice to that officer because otherwise you’ll be in trouble again
  • Maneuver around the potholes in the road where the children can play hide and seek 🙂
  • At the last minute dodging a taxi driving in front of me with one hand out the window having to replace the broken lighting
  • Stuck in a traffic jam in Kampala for the last time with your shirt stuck to your seat
  • Say goodbye to all the beautiful children in their beautiful village under construction

As you can guess, we won’t miss all of the above things. We are really looking forward to a holiday and meeting our dear friends and family. However, before that happens, we have one more hurdle to overcome. We’re going to fly! We have done this before, but there is currently a cloud of dust hanging over Europe. We’re flying via Cairo, so we’ll make it there. What happens there is still a surprise. Some research tonight has shown that there are still options to fly from Cairo to Barcelona. Even if the airspace above Amsterdam were to open again on Monday, the first plane from Cairo to Amsterdam would only leave on Wednesday. And that flight is almost full so it will still take a few days… Fortunately we have a plan B 🙂 There are no ash above Barcelona yet and tomorrow morning immediately after our arrival in Cairo there will be a flight to Barcelona! I also have a brother who is very cooperative and who was already somewhere in the south. And oh… Barcelona is also only a 12-hour drive away. If plan B doesn’t work, we still have plan C. Plan C goes via Morocco through the desert (by train) via the Strait of Gibraltar to southern Spain. There are always a lot of Heiploeg trucks (from Zoutkamp, ​​which is close to Buitenpost). This is a bit bad in the style of the cowboys and Indians so we hope for plan B! To be continued…
