Friends Old and New

What a wonderful afternoon we spent visiting our good friend Fidele and his family in their home today. Like nearly all the homes in this part of Uganda, there is no heating or air conditioning, and water is gravity fed, if they have water coming to the house at all. Hospitality and providing a meal is very important to the Sudanese and so they prepared a delicious meal of chicken and beef with rice and bread followed by ice cream for dessert.

Thank goodness it wasn’t raining or we probably would not have made it up the hill. In fact we decided to get out and walk the last part so the car would’t bottom out as it crossed some of the eroded ruts.
