I greeted the morning in UGANDA in the summer of 2019 with the sound of birds singing.
It was the first time I wandered around the city after arriving at the hotel where I was staying. My body tingled with excitement as I turned down the street and saw the sunset slums and the presence of the locals walking ahead of me.
It had been a long time since I had felt this kind of excitement, as I could go anywhere in the world and somehow confirm my existence as long as I had WiFi.
Knowing about the unknown world makes the world bigger and bigger, strangely enough.

I landed on African soil for the second time in 202X.
