Today was a busy day for us here in Rukungiri as it was our second day at Bishops High School and we were still getting to know all of the students. We began the day sitting in on the classes; it was fascinating to see how different a class in Uganda was to one at Groton School. I sat in on a history class and an English class with Tyler and Amani, and I think we were all a little taken aback by the 100 other students who shared the classroom with us. Coming from a school where 20 students in a class is a hefty amount, I was amazed at how well such a large class functioned. During breaks, students would gather around us to touch our hair, poke our faces, and ask us questions. They were particularly fascinated by Amani's camera and Tyler's watch. The warmth and curiosity of all of the students were so evident and it was amazing to feel so welcome in a place that could not be further away from home.
