It's imminent!

So, after many years of hesitation, and full of trepidation, I'm finally off to Uganda on Sunday!  Luckily for me, I'm going with lovely people, some of whom have been before - Vikram, Karen, Alex and Bex Devaraj, and Woan-Yi Chan.  We are going to Kampala for the first week (staying with Andrew and Sarah Hodges) and working / teaching at CoRSU hospital.  For the second week, we are visiting a more rural hospital in Kagando.  
Thank goodness we are allowed 2 suitcases!  This one is already full with splints and material for the physio and OT department at CoRSU.  The other one is rapidly being filled with toys and craft / school equipment for 'Hands for Hope' charity in Namawongo - a poor, informal urban settlement in Kampala.  Hopefully there'll be a little room for some clothes!
So this is the start of my 'blog' - hopefully there will be some interesting stuff to tell you about - that is if I can get internet access!  If not, I'll do it when I get back.
