Hot in Uganda!

There we are again! Last Sunday we arrived in Uganda. Kampala to be precise. We are staying here with Chris and Jurjanne, who help and guide the construction of a children’s village through their Kaja Foundation. They rent a beautiful bungalow here with a guesthouse behind it where we camp for the first 2 weeks. Baukje in the driveway of Chris and Jurjanne

It is a completely different world here than in Ethiopia. It is incredibly green here and along the streets you see advertising in the happiest colors everywhere. The people here are still a few shades darker and you wouldn’t expect it, but it is also a lot warmer here. Maybe the temperature doesn’t make much of a difference, but the humidity is a lot higher, which makes it feel warmer in any case. You actually sweat here all day…

The children’s village that Chris and Jurjanne are working on originated from the orphanage where we did a summer project a year and a half ago with a group from Bethel. We have of course already visited it and it is really a tremendous improvement. We will postpone the photos of the village until next time. We haven’t made them yet 🙂 It’s tremendous progress! A year and a half ago, there were still about 120 boys in a house in the middle of the city. Obviously much too small and not very suitable for such a large “family”. There are now 4 houses in the village and the 5th is ready for the roof to be installed. More space inside but especially outside. Football is the favorite sport and a real football field has already been built near the village.

Search carWe started with some chores to help Chris and Jurjanne. We are also still settling down a bit. We already have a telephone number with which we can also send cheap text messages to the Netherlands (see contact). We are also looking for a car. Looks like we’re going to buy one. Renting is really expensive here! The bottom line is that after 6 to 12 months of rent you have already paid the purchase price. Cars hardly depreciate here, so we are now looking for a suitable copy to buy. As long as it is solid, because due to the regular and heavy rain, most roads are really bad!

Well, I’ll get back to work on the database that contains the details of all the children. Also very important!
