Our last day in Uganda and just enough time for a last football match, featuring our newly constructed goal posts. The posts were so highly prized that the sports teacher and a number of students slept underneath them overnight while the concrete was setting to make sure they were not damaged. Richard Lander won on penalties (again) although we were never quite sure if Ugandan politeness meant they were going easy on us. Check out the before and after pictures below.
A trip back over the equator and a stop-off for food in Entebbe and all that was left was the flight home via Amsterdam. All the Richard Lander staff and students had a blast and the arrival home was emotional, everyone was awarded prizes (notably the Google Award – When you need to know something but have no Internet – awarded to Ifan Holwegger and the Beyoncé Award – for services to hair – awarded to Stella Thurlow). Ms Wright seems to have seen fit to document sleeping staff and students and it seems a shame to waste her efforts so I have included them as a gallery. Complaints to me (Mrs G) and I may get to it by the end of the summer. Have a great holiday and see you in September.
