However, as per usual, life runs away with me.
I was working on a documentary project for school. I am really excited about it--and can't wait to start editing it.
It was also great to visit my host family again--Stephen and Aidah Gesa, their three biological children, and the multitude of other people who share their home.
The water situation in Kamuli is much worse than when I left. People have significantly less running water than they did when I was in Uganda 8 months ago. However, the power situation is much improved. I don't think that we went more than a day without power--which is pretty good, considering that we were going a full week without it at this time last year.
I am just waiting for the day when by chance, Winnipeg goes off the water grid, and I can finally show off my ability to look like a million bucks in a hot dusty climate by washing my hair/body in naught but a bucket and a half of cold water.
Seriously. It's a useful and notable talent.
