Wednesday April 13, 2011

Wednesday-waited for Sophie who was supposed to pick us up at 10 but arrived at 2 with the projector we needed for the next day in Jinja. Larry then drove us all the way to the Jinja campus, about a 2 hour ride, and dropped us off. As we crossed the bridge over the Nile, the only bridge into Jinja, we took some photos. On the other side, the police stopped us and made us delete the photos. Don’t really know why. We spent the rest of the evening trying to connect my laptop to projector, to internet and then the xo to the same. The laptop worked fine but the xo even with my fancy little adapter did not, although it did work in NY. The classroom was about 10 by 10 and the next day 32 students (primary teachers) would be holding 20 laptops, with heat generated by all. We finally went to the Paradise Hotel, near the Nile, had a very big dinner (thanks to Jim who ordered everything). I settled for a long nights rest---well not really….I went over my presentation until 12:30 a.m., turned on the “air conditioner” timed for 2 hours and tried to sleep.

Whew! What a day!
