First countryside adventure

Our plane out was delayed somewhat, but eventually we arrived back and got to bed shortly after midnight.

This morning we left bright and early for village visits. A funder needed to do a site visit so we decided to tag along. The "toll road" was quite nice and had very little traffic and no potholes. We picked up some of our partner's staff along the way and then headed into "the bush." (That's taken quite literally here as we were just driving through savanna between trees and bushes, hoping our guide really knew where he was going)

Before long the car was stuck in deceivingly dry-looking mud. The group walked into the village while some of us stayed to dig the car out. Once ours got out the other one got stuck. The team and local volunteers worked hard, and eventually we all got back home again.
