Day 2- When it rains it pours.

Anela and AndreaTuesday Sept. 17, 2014. Andrea and I woke up early and ran a few errands. First the MTN store to get Internet and phone credit, then walked Main Street, and lastly stopped at Flavors, the local fancy coffee shop, to collect our thoughts. Everywhere we went we ran into someone Andrea new. It had been a year and a half since she was last in Uganda but she said it seemed like no time had passed at all. Andrea has planned a party in Walukuba that afternoon for the women and her to all meet. There was much to talk about. The company Andrea and Amber had originally worked for had dissolved creating mistrust, gossip, and an overall sadness in the air. A lot of time would have to be spent during this trip to clear that negative air. It was bittersweet. After the party we went with Betty and kymbi, Andrea and Amber’s family, to Betty’s new place. Betty welcomed us with tea. All of a sudden it started to rain. It was that kind of African rain storm I had only seen on TV.  We thought we would have to sleep over once the power went out. We talked with Betty about using her roof to install water bottles to bring in natural sunlight. My mind was running with all sorts of ideas on how to help the women I had met today. It felt I had been their two weeks and not two days.
