First Pictures

Posted February 7, 2007 in Uganda

Internet is very slow, so I won't bother trying to upload a load of pictures. Instead, I'll put three:

Me with some important people in Makarere University

St. Stephen's Hospital, from behind, while bouncing away on the bumpy dirt road

Kampala. I'm still bad at orientation, but I think this picture faces Mulago hill.

Today I visited St. Stephen's Hospital, which is very small but impressive nonetheless. I worked in the university a bit. I'm still trying to figure out the best way to contribute work which will be of use after I'm gone: it's by far my largest concern. I want to provide services which are not easy to come by (because I am capable), but if what I create would be unusable after I'm gone, then perhaps my best contribution would be to teach people how to make stuff bold in Word. I expect I will learn more in the days to come.

More stories will have to wait. I just wanted to get a few pictures back to those at home.
