On Mondays a nice variety of vegetables are brought to my favourite supermarket in Soroti. If I go at 4 pm I can wrestle with many Indians, Mzungus and a few Ugandans for treats like broccoli, red and yellow peppers, radishes, lettuce, beets, cauliflower, and the like. So, maybe three weeks ago a group of us were waiting in front of the supermarket, for the two sacks of vegetables to be delivered from the bus coming from Kampala. While there I met an old friend I haven't seen in years.
Francis was one of the first former LRA child soldiers that I ever met and he happily told me how much his life has changed and how the village has transformed. He also informed me that some Finnish friends I've known since 2009 were also in town... doing a follow-up on the programs with the former LRA.

This owl got caught in my chimney... I think he was trapped for 3 days before we opened a vent above my stove to let him out.
Teaching Sunday school
The kids always listen better when I'm dressed in character.
And this week I am back in the classroom with nursery and primary school teachers - assisting with Preventive and Corrective Discipline.
