Sometimes things are the same

In (broken) Acholi after initial greetings

Me: I’m going to Kampala for a work Visa, why are you travelling to Kampala?

Lady: I’m going to buy ‘Waa’

Me: Sorry I don’t understand, your going to buy what? (thinking I’ve heard wrong)

Lady: I’m going to buy ‘Waa’ (SHOES!)


Surprising perhaps, but some big city attractions are the same everywhere.

    Some things are the same – our son, Mark, has the same pink ones with the star on, that are in the photo!
    I enjoy your quirky posts.
