Ossis Otya (Goodmorning)
Its Independence today in Uganda so I'm not sure how busy it is going to be particuarly as I'm currently in Kampala the capital. However it is also possible that Uganda will be fairly quiet today following their lack of success in the football match yesterday. Literally Uganda has gone football crazy for the last couple of days! Travelling into Kampala on Friday the radio on the taxi had the football songs on repeat and there were loads of people out selling football shirts and various other football related items!
All Project Trust volunteers have met up this weekend for some further training and induction from our country hosts. We have discussed teaching problems and also had a talk from our doctor who gave us the seven rules of survival in Uganda. Apparently we are most likely to die in a car crash and secondly most likely to die by being murdered (not a very encouraging thought). However apparently the main reason for volunteers being sent home is chronic fatigue and so therefore one of the seven rules is; if you are tired go to bed!!!
The concert I mentioned in the last post went really well. There was a traditional dance group there from Kampala who hauled me and Beth on stage to have a go at dancing in front of a couple of hundred people! Was a lot of fun!!!
Hope for Youth School has half term exams this week so I have been busy writting them and trying to encourage pupils to revise. Classes have been cancelled for the exams so I think it will be a week full of marking!
Anyway will have to write more later as there is a queue for the computer.
