This is a boda boda (motorcycle taxi) driver in Kampala. These guys are everywhere weaving in and out of traffic with people and items on the back. It is the fastest way to travel in Kampala, but dangerous. I had no choice on Wednesday - we had to ride one to get to the Embassy on time after receiving her passport. He drove me and my 5-year-old daughter on a motorcycle (with no helmets) to ensure we would get an interview for her visa. It was crazy but necessary! I’ve seen babies on the back of these things.  (at USA Embassy)

Our room faces the pool and the Nile River. This is the part of Uganda I never thought I would see. I am grateful I get to show my daughter other parts of her country! (at Paraa Safari Lodge)

This girl is excited about our safari! We saw baboons, elephants, crocodiles, hippos, and tons of birds today. She spent the first 5 years living her life without stable electricity and running water. She is thrilled about our hotel room as am I! (at Paraa Safari Lodge)

We celebrated today! She got her passport and visa after a long day on Wednesday. Tomorrow we start a 2-day safari. We are here longer than we expected, so we are going to have fun! (at Brood)

We sit outside to wait for her passport with a couple hundred people. Vultures circle us throughout the day. We did not get it today. It looks like we will be here longer than we thought -hangin with vultures until we get it.  (at Jinja Road)

I love the way she writes her name! 20 hours of waiting at the passport office this week and we are still waiting for it. If we do not get it tomorrow, we will need to stay longer.  (at Jinja Road)
