Another interesting thing about our stay was when we felt earthquake tremors for the first time. It felt like a big truck was driving by with the radio turned up and the base booming; the ground and buildings were all shaking for about five seconds. Our friends in Entebbe (100km away) said they also felt the tremors.
A nice surprise yesterday morning was when the manager brought a cake out for us after breakfast. Terrill had told him that it was my birthday, so he decided to have the cook make something special. We finished our stay at The Haven while eating cake and drinking coffee on a cloudy morning as a drizzle fell over the campground and river. It was definitely a first for a birthday celebration. I suppose I have to get used to being away from friends and family during special occasions, but it doesn't make celebrating with strangers any easier. I thank God once again for a partner in life who holds my hand during those special days and makes life feel a little less lonely in this big old world.
