Dispatch 7 - Kesese

Click to enlarge Ian:
A rest day! Time to do washing, rest weary legs and shelter sunburns. Time to browse local markets, shop for local music and bargain for avocados, pineapples and chipati.

And a surprise… the drums and beating music are not just people cranking up the jukebox, but a major event across the road from our resthouse at the parade grounds. The Fourth of July comes to town! Today is a national holiday commemorating the overthrow of the old regime by Museveni’s government: singing, dancing, parading soldiers, billowing flags, all the vehicles in town are adorned with leaves and flowers, … a constant flow of visitors to our resthouse for beer, sodas and refreshments.
