What’s It Like To Travel To Uganda?

In 2 weeks, I'll leave on my 10th trip. I live on the east coast of the US, and usually travel through Amsterdam (although we've gone through both London and Dubai in the past). Total travel time? About 29 hours. EACH WAY. Cool cars for raffle in Heathrow - we didn't win one. Really really really long flights. Back when he was small enough to be somewhat comfortable. The glazed over "halfway there and I haven't slept any" stare ...

Five days to go. Is it time to panic?

I'm leaving on Friday. My flight's at 2:45, so I'm pretty much done with whatever I'm doing by noon. Today is Sunday, and my to-do list is as long as my arm, including editing a 100,000+ word book before I go. At some point, I guess you just have to laugh. I'm not quite there yet, though! So what's going on this week? First, I need to start packing. I get 2 suitcases of up to 50lb each, so I'm probably taking one of our super-light rollers and a duffel...
