Well we’re home! It was a fairly smooth return home. We had a nice final meal at a hotel in Entebbe on Saturday night and were up early on Sunday ready for a 9.10am flight. This was delayed, but only by an hour.
The flight was a good one with a real bonus in the fact that we came into Heathrow right over central London with the Olympic Stadium just to our right. I got home just after 7.00pm and since then I’ve mixed sleep with catching up with the Olympics. I’m absolutely knackered and now that two weeks adrenalin has left my body I’m dropping off to sleep at any opportunity.
The past two weeks have been fantastic and I feel proud to have been part of a trailblazing team. I strongly feel that this is just the beginning and that Yowasi’s visit in September will only strengthen the bonds further. I have learnt a lot about myself and discovered strengths I didn’t know I had. I’ve also learned that I cannot compete with a toy leopard for popularity.
Many thanks to Tara, Rebecca and Stu my three companions on this trip and to all the many people in Uganda who helped us throughout the fortnight.
Lastly, a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who has read this blog. I hope you have enjoyed reading this as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it.
