Monday June 22nd

First thing Monday, we went to the Suubi village to look arond at the vocational school and library that they have there. Suubi is Watoto's largest site, located on top of a hill with a beautiful view of the surrounding hills. We even got to try some of the food from the cooking school.. the samosas were delicious!

We then returned to Bbira for a dedication of the classroom we built. Along with the resident pastor and the building crew, we joined in song and prayer before saying our goodbyes. The pastor shared with us his gratitude for our visit, and discussed the "ripple effects" that our trip has had on the surrounding community.

Then we shopped! At one of the marketplaces in Kampala, we successfully obtained a large selection of drums and knives, as well as some assorted clothing and jewelry. Lots of fun. We got home pretty early so Andrew took some of the kids to Ciao Ciao for some yummy and cheap gelato, woot woot!
