One thing that has come pretty easy in Uganda is making friends. The people here are so kind and welcoming. I was walking back to my hotel from a local cafe, one day, when a woman greeted me and started talking to me. I quickly realized that she only knew a handful of English words and she could only speak in the local language of Luo. We carried on a conversation with hand gestures. She was making a gesture like she was writing and I could figure out that she was asking me if I was a teacher. I replied, “No, agriculture”.
She said, “Oh, agriculture! Apwoyo! Apwoyo! (thank you, thank you).”
She was so genuinely excited and grateful that I was here working with agriculture, and I have to say I am too!
