Our arrival was at the hospital was bittersweet, as we knew this was our final day. While Dr. Huang, Alexis, Stanley, Dr. St. Clair and I ran quick rounds, the others all remained to pack up some of the supplies, such as the instrumentation, to be sent back. The rest of the supplies were being left so the hospital could use them. Patients were doing well; many had left, we had plans to discharge others, like Gudena, Gertrude, and Wilber. A few others were going to remain a little longer to make sure they were ready to return. Once done with rounds, we regrouped with everyone, and finished moving supplies and grabbing anything we weren't leaving behind. We said our goodbyes, took one big group picture, and boarded the bus to depart.
The bus ride was long, filled with naps, and had a nice stop to look at the equator (and do a little bit of shopping for souvenirs!). The break to stretch and walk was much needed, as we took a solid 30 minutes walking around, buying things, and watching the demo of the Coriolis Effect (the idea that water spins in a different direction in the northern and southern hemispheres, and on the equator line itself). After more driving, we arrived in Kampala at Khyber Pass for one last fantastic meal in Uganda, as we drove to Entebbe for our flights out.
Much driving and a few hours later, we arrived at the airport in Entebbe for our flights to begin the long trek home. Knowing we'd see each other on a layover in Amsterdamn, we all boarded, knowing the long trek home was just beginning.
