Chicken on a stick and Sunsets

First, a picture of the sunset from the top floor of my building.  Did I not tell you that there are beautiful sunsets here?

Sunset in Entebbe, Uganda

Also, since today was basically the last day that the rest of the team is together, we walked, with a visiting researcher from Johns Hopkins, into town to the BBQ area and I had the best chicken on a stick I've ever had in my life.  Sincerely.  It was better than the chicken on a stick that I had in Japan.  The meat was so juicy and so well spiced.  So good.  Two helpings was 6000 shillings or a little over $2USD.  No pics, I felt a little conspicuous whipping out my camera. 

There were quite a few things that I wish I had taken pictures of like women walking with stuff balanced on their heads, women in gomesi (traditional dress, very common outside of the city, not so much in the city), more food items, etc.

The Roommate leaves tomorrow morning very early, the other team member has errands to run on Monday, and then is off to visit family in western Uganda, which just leaves me - last man standing.  I got plenty to do so no worries.

More posts to come including the wrap up post of what I learned in Uganda.
