Doreen, bus crash, sister, Italy

Doreen arrived back in Uganda safely on the 28th.  After a day in Kampala she caught a coach home to Mbarara to see her family.  As is a common occurrance in Uganda (bad roads + bad drivers) her coach crashed.  Doreen was slightly injured as she banged her mouth on the seat in front of her.  At least 6 people were killed in the crash. 

Doreen begins her 2nd year shortly at Makerere University. 

This Friday my sister arrives for a month.  An 11 day tour of Italy and 3 days in York are part of our plans. Many pics to follow.

Oh, no. Poor Doreen. I'm glad she wasn't seriously hurt. My heart goes out to those who lost their loved ones.

I hope y'all have a great time in Italy. Take lots of pictures. :-)

Doreen must have had an amazing time with you. What a shame her adventure ended in such a way and terrible for everyone involved.
