day eight

I hadn't been to the equator since my first trip to Uganda in 2006. It was great fun yesterday to take a little road trip there with three of CTT's sponsored students - all lovely young women! Rebecca, Nahia and Fionah joined us as we played road trip games ("I'm going on Noah's Ark" and the alphabet game, just to name a couple), ate lemon cream cookies, laughed a lot and admired the passing scenery. Once there, we took the obligatory tourist photo and then enjoyed the art galleries and shops. We watched the cool demonstration about the flow of water just north of the equator, just south of it and then directly on it (spins one way, then the other, then does not spin at all). It was a very fun morning for all of us.
