This is going to be a short post because I'm exhausted, but after 24 hours of travel we made it safe and sound to the Ndere Culture Center in Kampala, Uganda. We connected through Dubai, and the airport looks something like this:
After landing at Entebbe Airport, we endured a 4 hour drive to Ndere, mostly due to traffic. As you can see in the video, the bikes are moving pretty freely and the cars, not so much.
At one point, a few of us got out of the cramped car to stretch our legs, and a woman sitting in a car next to us started talking to us. As soon as she found out we were Americans, she wanted to talk about Donald Trump! She also gave us her thoughts on the electoral college. 😂
We finally got to Ndere, checked into our rooms and had a nice dinner. We're all exhausted, but looking forward to rehearsing in the space here, meeting the other artists, and getting to explore more of Kampala. See you tomorrow!
P. S. Shout out to Emirates Airlines for giving you a 4 course meal and complimentary wine in COACH. That was key.
