New House

I have yet another new house. We decided we wanted to be closer to the city so we moved to an area in Kampala called Ntinda. The house is an older house with three bedrooms and maid's quarters (which I'm not sure what I'll do with yet, maybe turn them into offices)

I'm within easy walking distance of a nice little market for buying fruits and veggies as well as several small supermarkets. It's also the crossroads for two different taxi routes so I can get to either side of the city in just a few minutes which is nice.

The other nice thing is that where we were living, the taxis stopped running about 8:00pm so it was impossible to eat out or see a late movie (at the one movie theatre in Uganda). The taxis run late to Ntinda so we can go out on the town and still make it home in one piece.

WOW! Love your new home. I would be interested on seeing what the inside looks like? Do you have running water and electricity all the time now?
Hope all is well. We still worry about you. Are you planning a trip to the States any time soon?

Hi Kerri, We still have electricity every other day...usually turns on or off between 5:00 and 6:00 in evening. The water situation at the new house is much better, I would almost always run out of water near the end of the 48 hour cycle. Here, the water just gets turned off sporadically and I've yet to go through all the water in the tank before it comes back. I have a ticket back to the US at the end of January, I'm debating whether or not to use it as it would cost me about $2000 to return here afterwards. We'll see.
