Emotions after 5 months: I want to stay more:). I feel people have hard time but they can enjoy life – people are like sun here. And I love the kids here. About the school in the begging I felt bad – they don’t have enough teachers, bad conditions etc. At the moment – I think they need this school. Relationships with teachers are sometimes difficult (keeping time tables etc). And overall in Uganda people are very helpful – they help you on the streets etc.
