My new study abroad plans will take me to the country of Uganda in East Africa, departing on Wednesday, March 15. Crazily, I feel calm and comfortable about traveling to that faraway continent this second time and have only just begun to assemble my stuff!!
The route is a little shorter than my Zimbabwe trip. Here's the path, Chicago to Entebbe International Airport, with an airport layover in Istanbul, Turkey. I have already checked -- there are six coffee shops located at this airport! Naturally, one of them is the requisite Starbucks, but I hope to sample some genuine Turkish coffee after our initial 10 hour flight, and before boarding the final 7 hour flight from Istanbul to Entebbe, our destination city.
