Packing smart

While packing for Uganda, I had to include some tools and parts for MADE Uganda, a group of disabled who build wheelchairs. This included a pipe cutter and 40 sealed bearings for the wheels.

Then I thought about taking some Miracle-Gro for Winnie’s mother, who has a small farm for the family.

BAD IDEA!

Hmmm! Pipe cutter, bearing casings, and high-nitrogen fertilizer; flying through London! The bomb-sniffing dogs would have gone nuts. Security wouldn’t have asked me to comewith them, they’d have Tasered me repeatedly on the spot, then hauled me off to a back room for days of repeated body cavity searches and playing 10,000 questions!
