June 11, 2007

48 hours later

After what can only be described as a massive delay I am finally in Uganda, not only that I am where I am supposed to be! I now have a house and a bedroom (in a really nice house that has a cleaner and gardener). Its SO much nicer than I was expecting. There is no hot water, but a nice cold shower in the morning is something that I will learn to love (and most of the time I was sure that it will be welcome due to the heat).

I have seen a little of the city, and it is more built up than I was expecting. The Queen is coming (as in our Queen) in September so they are busy trying to build luxury hotels (they knocked down a school to do this) and repair the roads. The roads are bad.

I am going to go to the hospital in about 20 minutes. I'm going to be shocked. Its an odd sensation knowing that you are going to be shocked. I have turned down the offer of pictures to prepare me. Not sure if this is a wise decision or not, but Id rather go without any preconceptions, perhaps this is unwise, but there is only one way to find out.

I am keen to start the study as its going to be hard to remain neutral, and the more time that I spend here the more involved personally I will become. It will be hard to remain unattached emotionally, but it something that will get more difficult with time so I just want to get on with it!

I think that is enough rambling, and for those who are interested I will try to put up some pictures.
