So we continue to take Erica on a whirlwind tour of the sites and sounds of Kampala.
Sunday night, I left the kids with Pat and Kara and she and I and one other couple headed out to the Ndere Centre to watch a dance troupe perform traditional dancing and drumming. While the entire evening, from the comical MC to the colourful costumes, was entertaining, I think the highlight was probably watching woman dance with as many as nine pots stacked on their heads. Crazy!
Monday, we visited two different babies' homes: one, our usual stomping grounds at Loving Hearts, and, the other, a home called Nsambya which I had not yet visited but which we hope to partner with when teams come to visit our resource centre. Here are a few photos of the time we spent with the children.
Today, we spent a long day at the BeadforLife office. Erica helped out by doing quality control and counting on the bead sale line and also helped in the soap production department. Normally, we get all 69 beaders through the sale by 2 pm at the latest but today, the line wasn't moving so fast and we were just finished (and able to go to lunch) by three. Erica was a trooper and kept smiling the whole time. Unfortunately, all the pictures from our day are on her camera and without a cable, I'm not able to upload them to my blog. Too bad, cause she looked really good surrounded by all those colourful beads. I even got some great video footage of her dancing up a storm in the bead circle, which is the informal meeting/celebration which starts every sale.
We had dinner with Pat and Kara and on the way home stopped for a long-overdue haircut for Graham at the One Love Saloon. Erica made some new friends!
