When asked what I wanted to see on my first trip to Africa, my #1 response was to see a water well being drilled. Our family business at home is water well drilling and I couldn’t wait to compare our drilling techniques.
What an amazing experience to walk up on the jobsite in Fort Portal and see so many differences in equipment & materials but yet learn that the technique is very similar. The hydraulic engineer spent an hour answering all of my questions. He was incredibly gracious as is every African I have met thus far.
There are so many things we have learned and seen so far. This is going to be an incredible two weeks. I hope it goes slow so I can soak in every experience!
