I am going to leave for Uganda in exactly 18 days!
Seems quite soon actually. I hate packing for a weekend trip….always paranoid about forgetting something….so packing for nine months in a foreign country is slightly overwhelming…..But, that’s okay- it must be done, and it is always the first step of traveling.
So, the first step to really anything that I do in life is making a good list….and I have begun that this morning. There are some things that I will be sad to leave behind…but not really. Mostly I am excited about the opportunity to simplify my life for a while and just take the things with me that I truly need to have.
And now for 5 Fun Facts about Uganda!
- The size of the country is only slightly smaller than the state of Oregon.
- Uganda gained its independence from the UK in 1962.
- The climate is tropical and generally rainy with 2 dry seasons.
- National languages are English, Swahili, and Luganda.
- Population 35,873,253
I am very excited though and looking forward to the trip very much.
I hope you all are having a great day so far!
