Awkward + Awesome

Happy Awkward + Awesome Tuesday! 

Living in Uganda provides so many moments for this I can't even. 


  • Accidentally getting into a conversation on how much people make. Some topics are taboo across all cultures. AWKWARD. 
  • Standing as the token Mzungu (white person) at the Lira Miracle Crusade and having the town "mad man" come talk to me... multiple times [Don't worry we moved and he left, not to be seen again for the rest of the night]. 
  • Being the Mzungu in any crown. Staring, greetings, weird looks and very random requests always abound. 
  • Cooking here. Enough said. Especially when they're trying to teach me to cook African style! 
  • Finding LETTUCE at the market this week. Seriously I could have cried. If you don't believe me let's remember this post from last week. 
  • Gangsta rap and headphones to listen to it when little ears are around. 
  • Having to wear a sweater to bed because it actually got chilly after the rainy day. 
  • Guacamole + Salsa with fresh homemade tortilla chips at one of the American Cafes' in town. 
  • Semi- weekend days with friends + lunch dates! 
  • My first full night of uninterrupted sleep since I've arrived: it only took 40 days. 
  • Making friends with Donald. 

Happy Awkward + Awesome Tuesday!
