Glamorous life of me

Glamorous life of me

The not so glamorous side of traveling to exotic far off locations are the airports. After sitting in an upright position for 9 hours straight you just want to lay on a cold hard surface with a scarf over your head, right? I hope some day they get more couches and recliners in the Amsterdam airport. But until then I’ll have to make do with the floor this March when I fly again. That’s right the ticket is purchased and I am committed to go March to June of this year. What will I be doing this time?

Watching and learning how Buweboya runs it’s first term of school and meeting more of the kids one on one I hope. Often I go and it’s a whirl wind of business and never enough time to just ‘Be’. Well this time there will be a lot of ‘Be’ time for Sarah.

This trip is compounded more with the realization that I will be leaving my boyfriend behind and spending 2.5 months in a foreign country alone. Living with minimal comforts and figuring out how to make meals, wash clothes, and live each day without modern appliances. I know others have done this sort of thing but it’s all new to me. My last trips I had a cook or a guest house to stay in, but this time I’ll be running solo.

First obstacle to overcome is transportation. I won’t have a car this time and so I need to get from Entebbe to Tororo with prayer and I hope use the connections I have gathered on my last trips.

Second obstacle to overcome is eating. I don’t cook with a modern stove all that much as it is so I’ll try surviving on protein bars and water. Or perhaps find a cook ha!  I won’t be slaughtering and plucking my own chicken that’s for sure.

Last and hardest obstacle will be the cultural and emotional strain. Plan for this one is to Pray a lot while there!
