In our circle of American friends in Uganda, there is a phrase that is often used in effort to lighten the mood of a rough day or frustrating experience:  TIA- This Is Africa.  It reminds us that things are different here, and there is just no sense in expecting routines and details to work as they do in the US.  
The first month or so we were here, I didn't have the camera out much.  I was just taking it all in.  But lately, I've been wanting to share some of the things that make Africa unique! Keep in mind that these sights are completely normal here- we see them nearly every day.  I am amazed at the beauty, strength, and resourcefulness of these precious people!  So, please enjoy this little drive-by tour of Kampala!

Those pictures are worth a thousand words!
Didn't you Crow ladies think of "Caps For Sale" when you say the man with the cups on his head? :)

LOVE all the pics you've shared. So happy you're all doing very well & have really adjusted to more than most of us could ever dream of. The date for the birthdays was cute. I'm sure it was a fun evening for you both. It's great you can go somewhere close & get your fresh veggies, what a blessing that is. You all continue to take care each other & enjoy this chapter in your life. Prayers are always sent your way for all to go as He has planned. : )
