Because of the rains and the poor condition of the roads, there has been a lot of mud and some rivers that have been impossible to ford in our large truck, so we took apart the air intake system and put together a new system with a snorkel. Jua Kali is Swahili for “the hot sun.” In common parlance, a mechanic or other entreprenuer who fixes things with what they have on hand, probably at a roadside business. We are now able to use this vehicle to pick up supplies and drill wells in farther parts of Uganda.
Satan does live in this world; we’ve never met him as a talking snake before, though.
