Today is transition day.  We started today in Mbarara (six hours southwest of Kampala Uganda) and I’m typing this email from the historic city of Addis Abba Ethiopia.  The drive up from Mbarara got off to an early start and we drove through spurts of rain.  We had our jackets on as we crossed the equator, […]
