The drillers were able to get to a depth of 6 meters and hit water the first day of drilling! I think they put the casing in yesterday (Thursday). We had asked them to start drilling in advance of our arrival in case they hit something that took some time. Guess that wasn't necessary after all. I wasn't expecting everything to run so smoothly. Knock on wood J.
We're in Amsterdam now, en route to Uganda. We'll sleep between Kampala and Entebbe, wake up early to purchase the pump, and then it's off Buseesa!
