Officially at Home for the Next 2 Years

Officially at our site and where we will be living for the next 24 or so months. Getting to our district is difficult unless you have a vehicle and luckily our organization sent one to bring us with all of our things, public transport would have been very difficult. Unlike other places we have been, there are no tarmac roads at all. In fact, as soon as you enter the district they turn into dirt roads filled with potholes and rocks. This makes for a really bumpy ride and when it don't want to be stuck out there.

We live in Kibaale District. Kibaale means very large rocks and we are surrounded by them. It really is beautiful and we can't wait to go exploring some of the caves that are around.

First Impressions: Our town is small but nice. It is basically two roads that intersect. Unlike the other towns we have been in, there are hardly any cars. Instead most people drive motorcycles, which makes because having a car out here wouldn't last long. There is a Saturday market and small dukas (shops) where we can get the basics: bread, eggs, oil, butter, fresh milk and soap.
