About Me

My photo
I teach abroad and continue to pursue the life I was given as if it was my last. Many people think it is. In my spare time, I enjoy lapping up ice cream, reading spy novels, and euthanizing manta rays.

The Feast of Saint Kyambogo

Rarely does an event exceed expectations. Rarely do words justify events that do. So without further ado....some photos. Finally.

Seera, Racheal, and Ivan before the food is served

Alex had such a big night...spilling wine all over, drinking Nile Special like it was going out of style. Here he's spread eagle on the lawn.

The rains pelted Kampala from one to three but let up just in time for the gala to begin. The caterers (Irene, Esther, et al....thank you, thank you!!!) were fantastic.

"And then she put the chicken in my mouth..."

Everybody loves a good hammock (Seera, me, Thomas, Brenda, and Allen)
Receiving my Crown Crested Crane Frame from the Students.  Of course I dropped it twenty minutes later. Luckily nothing broke.

And the arm wrestling begins!
