Leaving Lira

Transplanting yourself into a foreign setting can shake your physical world so much that the only thing left that’s readily accessible is emotion.


Every once in awhile, there’s a moment that changes the way you see things for the rest of your life. The “every once in awhile” in that last sentence can turn into “every day” when the emotions run as high as they have on this trip.


It happened last year and it happened again this year. I can’t believe it’s already almost over.


Thank you so much to everyone who has commented on my blog. Even though we haven’t had enough time or internet connection to let me respond to any of the comments, I’ve read them and they mean so so much.


We’re leaving Lira behind tomorrow and moving on to Murchison Falls. I might be able to write a real blog post on Wednesday night, til then we won’t have the internet.


Happy Father’s Day Dad, I love you and I’ll see you soon!
