Traveling to Uganda: Day 1

Friday, February 3, 2017 by Claire Dodinval

Today was the day! We were all so excited to meet at Newmark this morning and head out on our adventure. After sorting out all lab equipment and personal bags between the rental cars, we made our drive up to O’Hare, chatting and singing along to songs like “Africa” by Toto to pump up the enthusiasm. We flew through KLM Dutch airlines. Our first flight was from Chicago to Amsterdam, which left Friday afternoon. This was just the first of three flights to Uganda, the start of a long day-and a half of travel. We all tried to use the 7-hour flight get some rest in preparation for the days ahead, and had fun watching movies as well!
