We started the 9-hour journey, but I was excited! When I get to a new country or city there is always so much to see, so I was just sitting there, entertaining myself by staring out the window.
We finally reached our destination and also here I was supposed to be met by someone. I got outside, the bus left, and I suddenly felt very alone and it would not have been hard for the guy to find me, I kind of stood out with my big backpack and blond hair. This time I didn't know the name of the hotel so I just had to wait. I sat down on my backpack and waited. There was a guy that went past me a few times and then he came over to me. He asked me if someone were supposed to meet me. I told him yes, but I didn't know who, and I didn't know what hotel I was going to, but told him the name of the tour company I booked with. He smiled and said he knew the guys that worked there and if I could give him money to put money on his phone, he would call them for me. I gave him a little (probably not more than 50cents, but it was enough he said). He left and I thought I'd never see him again, but 5minutes later he came back, made a phone call and two minutes later my ride was there. I couldn't thank him enough!!
After dinner (finally a real meal which was only about $1-2) I went to the bar which was a little building outside the main building and had my first Ugandan beer.
