Ugandan Thanksgiving

Yesterday was Thanksgiving – and we (myself and the 3 other volunteers/researchers) celebrated in Ugandan fashion. We got together with a group of 3 Ugandan friends and ate a big meal of chapattis, samosas, boiled sweet potatoes, pumpkin soup, rice, dodo (green bitter spinachy veggies), and corn. We also had…chocolate cake!!! After dinner, we sat out on the porch and watched “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” on a laptop, while rain poured down and red-tailed monkeys jumped from tree to tree in the background. Happy Thanksgiving :)
