Northern Uganda

This started as the on-line journal of Africa Anonymous while she was an Graduate Fellow researching and working in Northern Uganda. You gotta be good. You gotta be strong. You gotta be 2,000 places at once.

The Countdown Begins

I am back in Lira after a relaxing weekend back in Makindye staying with German Steffi #1. I stayed in my old bed, and while I shrugged off Steffi's initial offer to use her curtains as a comforter in light of the blanket shortage, I awoke freezing the second night and took up the offer. Uganda continues to be all about improvisation. And now I am in my final Lira days...

Upon my arrival in the office this morning, I learned that my "best friend" in Ogur Camp had again sent my colleagues with some gifts and his greetings. He gave me a big stick with a clumped head, which I am told is for cooking (and we all know how much of that I do). And as the staff were leaving the camp, he ran after the car, telling my colleagues that I would be hungry too, so he sent them with a pumpkin!

It is nice to be back in Lira and I only have a few days left with much to do. I will finally see Baby Kelly again, as she will make the journey from Gulu with her momma. I also hope to squeeze in another run with my groupees. Otherwise, the clock is ticking!
