Recommended Posts

We are heading out from Dubai Marina in the United Arab Emirates and the eight teams are flying to Kampala, Uganda. After touching down, teams must hail a taxi and make their way into the city of Kampala. Becca and Floyd are out first and they say they can’t make a mistake now with everyone being so close.


Chris and Bret talk about how they’ve been doing well and they head out. Tyler and Korey are off and they say the challenge is to appreciate a culture that doesn’t appreciate them. All the teams are starting to come into the airport and Tyler is reflecting on the privileges he has being LGBTQ in America and how others don’t have those same privileges.
