The sun was shining, the weather was sweet! After breakfast I went with a colleague of my mom, Inge, to the ‘ national theater’, an arts and crafts market in Kampala. I love to stroll around the African markets, looking at the beautiful colors, talking to the locals and of course taking pictures.
I bought an African bag, yep I’m starting to feel like a local already or at least I’m trying to integrate bit by bit :-)! Afterwards, we went to a very local fruit market, where we probably were the only 2 tourists. We didn’t make a great choice of fruit stand, in between a box full of living crickets and one with fried crickets, my appetite couldn’t be bigger.. Inge had a hard time negotiating with the fruit sellers, but she managed to get the price she wanted. 20,000 Ugandan shilling for 2 pineapples (6 euro)?!!! t0 finally pay about 1 euro each. Same story with the avocados, mango’s and vanilla pods.
Now I’m waiting at the hotel for Julie of ‘Child Africa’ to pick me up. I will stay one night at their house in Kampala and from tomorrow on I will visit the schools, first stop is at the Child Africa school, located right on the Equator and afterwards a long drive to Kabale where I will stay until the end of June!
Let the real African adventures begin!
