Finni and me and Java
Since the last post, I have been in Kenya and Nairobi me, per, Aina and Ingrid went for the Ezra conference, which was hosted by Focus Kenya. We arrived two days early for the conference, so we stayed with the Norwegian Hald students in Nairobi. It was really good to see them again and to see how they are living and to sheer our time in Africa so fare.I liked the conference very much; it was much program every day, a little bit more than we are used to back home. I had some interesting meetings and seminars; I think I liked the seminar about leadership the most.On New Years Eve, we were 13 Norwegians together ( the 12 Hald students based in Kenya and Uganda and the sister of Thomas), so we hade to have a Norwegian feature in the New Years program. We also celebrated the New Year twice, since we are two hours in front hear, we also celebrated the Norwegian New Year. I also met some nice people from South Africa, which I got to know. If I was going to South Africa someday, I must come and visit them, and I could stay with them. So I think that in the year 2010, in the summer would be good time to visit South Africa.
We stayed in Kenya for a week, and me, Per and Finnie managed to go to town four times, so I go to see some of Nairobi town, it is more western and modern than Kampala. So I felt like a tourist, and also did some shopping. And we also found our "own" coffee shop, Java, which in fact visited all four times, some times eating, some times dirking milkshakes or coffee.So what about the bus trip to and from Nairobi, when we arrived in Nairobi we used 13 hours, and they said we should use 10 hours. And the way back… Back we drove over the night, we used 17 Hours, and I did not sleep at all:p and a little tip, if you are going to take bus here, sit as long as you can in front in the bus, before if you sit behind, you will really feel all the bumps in the road, and in the route between Kampala and Nairobi, you will fin many, small and big.
Ok, if you don’t know way I want to go to South Africa in 3 ½ year, I will tell you: It is because they are going to host the football World Cup then, hopefully the Norwegian also will qualify.And to before I finish this post, I will write down my New Year resolutions (for the rest of my time here in Uganda).
1) At least 3 jogging trips every week
2) Eat some fruits every day.
3) Eat less candy and drink lesser sodas during the week.
