Yesterday I ate the cheapest kind of street food on the dusty roadside and today I had a coffee with the daughter of the former president. I am expecting to see more of both for the remainder of my stay and several meetings have already been arranged.

Today I ate fried grasshoppers and attended a traditional Ugandan engagement party, which is an adventure all on its own. Yes, I did wear a traditional Ugandan dress.

Uganda is not unlike Kenya - the big difference for me this time, is being hosted by well connected locals. It really broadens the reach and thus the experience.

My ambition for this visit is to explore the cultural differences first hand and attempt to understand the mechanisms at work here. With any luck inspire with new perspective, and leave with new perspective gained.
