two surprises, an impound, and a wedding

As I sit writing this, I am not sitting on my bedroom floor or my bed in Mukono (my two typical blog writing locations).
But I am sitting on my bed
…in Michigan.

Last Wednesday night I walked through the door and totally surprised my mom, which was pretty great.

One of my good friends is getting married in two days, and I have the honor of being in her wedding, thus this trip to America.  My time here is really short, I am only in the States for a total of two weeks; but so far it has been really good and not even close to mundane:)

On my way here, I had a layover in Brussels, Belgium.  New stamp in my passport, I think so!

thought I found the Grand Palace, but really, I’m not so sure what building I found

Not only did I surprise my mom, but I also surprised one of my friends, by showing up to her graduation at Indiana Wesleyan University.

Tuesday, I took a 2:15am bus to Chicago, to spend the day with my Suminta!

pictures in cars never get old:)

We had a great day, despite walking back to her car at one point and it was gone.  Definitely a first for both of us, her car had been towed and impounded.  Everything worked out and we just laughed about this for the rest of the day!

Being here has been such a whirl-wind.  I feel like I have been non-stop with seeing people and trying to figure out what all needs to happen before I go back home to Uganda.  I am so thankful for this opportunity.

much love!
