It took several flights to get to Uganda:
Tulsa to Atlanta: 2 hours
Atlanta to Amsterdam: 8 hours, 45 minutes
Amsterdam to Uganda: 10 hours, 35 minutes
We left Tulsa at 12:20pm on a Wednesday
W arrived in Uganda at 10:15pm on a Thursday
total time from leaving to destination: almost 34 hours.
We were greeted to our first morning in Uganda under the shelter of a mosquito net-covered bed, to the sounds of different birds singing in the trees. I don’t know how to describe the sounds, just that they were different enough from what we were used to that I knew I was in a very different, far off place.
