I just realized I never shared pictures of the holiday and the trip back west where yours truly was born. Guess I am still recovering from the shock of the accident. One thing I can say about home (Mt Rwenzori) is that is is magnificently beautiful. The scenery is breathtaking and there is a lot of natural beauty. These pictures don’t do any justice to what we saw with our eyes!
And then on the negative note, this area has a lot of untapped potential and the people still live in poverty. It broke my heart to visit a secondary (equivalent of a high school) school that only had a cabinet for a library (below). being a book worm, i can’t help but think these kids aren’t exposed to any books at all(it is sad). But despite all these setbacks, you will still find cheerful people who put all their trust in God. Its an amazing testimony. My life was changed, seriously!
I realized the most important thing is to love people–I am not much of a lover(ahem!….another post probably!) but one of the resolutions this year is to love people around me more(I tell you it’s hard!) and I believe God is going to help me through it– and to help whenever the chance comes.
Overall, we had a great time. We even had a chance of collecting real(are there fake ones?) river stones from rivers and dipping our feet in cool water! Le sigh!
