Today was the first day in Uganda - after 17 hours on the plane - we were ready to crash in the hotel last night. This morning, the bus picked us up to travel the 2-1/2 hours to Jinja from Entebbe - and we had a flat. Normally, this is a very frustrating time - flat tires - however, we found joy in this particular flat tire. Joet - the bus driver was so joyful and kind and made us all feel so safe. His perspective on the event was one that we could all learn from.
We also met the family that lived right next to where the flat occurred. The ladies brought their baby to show us and although there was a language barrier, there was no barrier when we took photos of them. They were laughing at their pictures and so excited about the pictures of the baby. Maybe it was the first time they had seen their baby in a photograph. Regardless, they were elated to see the photos and thrilled to laugh a few minutes with the girls.
