Today, after a little work at ICU, we tagged along with the CFU team at their “hand-over ceremony” at the school sponsored by the Vice President. Jackie, also from MIT, arrived late last night, so she was certainly in for a treat today.
Once we arrived, the security personnel escorted us to our seats, and just a few feet away was the Vice President of Uganda. How awesome is that? The team had met the President a few days earlier while they were in Masaka over the weekend (I didn’t go because I had work to do in Kampala). Two years ago the CFU team I was on met President Museveni at the State House, but this year…wow. Both the President and the VP…neat.
The Vice President was very sociable and friendly. People here really love him (and some say even more than the President).
