Our Life in Kampala

This is just going to be a really quick post since it is once again quite late. I can’t believe how busy we are staying and time is really flying by. I thought you all might be interested in seeing a couple of photos of Mulago Hospital Guest House, our living accommodations while in Kampala. We start the day off with a nice breakfast of eggs, toast, fresh fruit (pineapple or bananas), tea or coffee, and fresh passion fruit juice- yummy! We eat in a communal dining room and breakfast is one of the best parts of the day when we can interact with people from all over the world who have also come to Uganda to do work. Some volunteer, some are conducting research and some are pursing part of their medical residencies. The picture below shows Stacy conversing with Megan, an OB-GYN resident from UCSF in California, and Jean, a Nurse Midwife from the UK.

Lunch break is anywhere between 12-3 and is usually eaten at one of the many canteens around the hospital. Lunch usually consists of rice or potatoes or matoke (mashed banana) with a meat or bean sauce. We are usually done around 5 and then we to home to rest, relax, or work on projects. Dinner is our nightly treat out and we’ve been sampling some of Kampala’s delicious restaurants.
