#32 – More photos from Uganda

Lynne is back from Uganda, but we’re finding various photos and stories to post.

350 of these children are in boarding school near the Sisters of St. Joseph (CSJ) and went to mass with us each morning.  Most people walk or bike the roads, and they are a  little difficult to navigate.

local roads with bricks in the middlePeople leave bricks and debris all over the roads.  When it rains, huge ruts form and erode, making the paths perilous for many vehicles.  You can walk or bike, or you can take a bota-bota, which is a motorcycle taxi.

A bota-bota fits two people behind the driver, and it can be a little scary.

We’ll probably have more content coming over the next couple weeks, so keep your eyes peeled!

  2. So glad for these continued messages even though you are home. Unfortunately, I am not able to pick up the pictures on this e-mail. I was able to view the message and the photo of the palm trees.
    Keep them coming. Eventually I might be able to view the pictures. It seems the problem is when there is more than one photo. I’ll keep trying. Maryellen
