List of Favourites

As someone who is meant to do a lot of writing, it is funny how often I avoid the task. It might have something to do with my preclusion for hard work, or my affinity for easy work, but writing, whichever way you cut it, is hard. Making lists? Not so hard. So, here is a list of some of our favorite things that we have discovered during our time in Uganda. It was difficult to narrow our choices, but we have done so because it was easier than explaining them in long form. Just consider the bullets points to be poetic grammar or something.

    blessings to you both, and try to interview some old timers for traditional stories. Much wisdom to be gleaned from the African Aesop.

    • Thanks Malcolm, I trust that Melanie would side with me though 😉 I hope to get some interesting traditional stories, but it has proven to be rather difficult at times. I will see what I can do!
