Elections are this Friday, and it looks like we can’t leave until probably next Friday.
So for safety’s sake, we’ve been advised to stay in our guest house Friday through Monday. This is not a complaint. We’ve been running like mad, so staying still with our sweet Amelia and the other family living at our guest house sounds nice.
And it’s not like we’ve been stuck in Uganda for a long time. If we really leave in 9 days, it will have been a 3 week trip. We expected 5. Some families have gotten stuck here for months. We are so blessed that things moved so quickly!! We are thanking God.
Still, pray for Uganda and peace during elections. We’re growing to love this country. (The only reason we’re anxious to leave it is because we want our WHOLE family to be together with Caroline!)
In the meantime, check out some seriously nasty pictures.
Yesterday after court, we passed a guy selling fried grasshoppers. I’ve been obsessed with Uganda for some time and have read what a treat these are in the right season. So I wanted to try one. I thought it’d be battered and fried where you couldn’t tell what you were eating anyway.
|Here I am, nervously holding a bag of fried grasshoppers.
(They don’t use car seats here.)
|Unfortunately, these grasshoppers were not battered.
I could still see the eyeballs. Disgusting.
I guess “fried” means “pan-fried.”
|I ate one. It tasted like a crispy, greasy bug.
No thank you. I was done.
|At least I can say I tried it.
You want one?
