Travel Blogs from Entebbe
It's been a fortnight since I last posted a blog on here. Over that time I’ve accumulated quite a few stories to tell you but lacked the time or the energy to post them. I’ve had a pretty tough week and I wanted to allow time for a more positive perspective and the ability to say with conviction "but it’s alright now." So here it is, two weeks in the life of a Kiwoko elective student, starting from my last post two week’s ago:

Border crossing easy – just another ...
... did some work on that sensory board plan and came home just before 5 because it looked like it was about to pour down.
It was so relaxing not being watched all the time and I think I work a lot better independently. I wonder if anyone will turn up tomorrow? Last working day till Safari!!!!
When I got home the storm did start, the power went off almost straight away. I bet that happens every time it rains. Hopefully it will come back on later so I can make some food.
