New Family Photos

It seems like our trip family has grown over recent days. Today we went on the "Rural Visit" where the students are hosted by rural farmers and shown the crops they produce and the techniues they use. Soon detialed posts will be finsihed by the students, i just wanted to post two new family photos. one with the students, the host families, and a small group of grandchildren of our hosts who performed a welcome song. The other is the students, one of our hosts and children from the village who joined us on a walking tour of the village after a wonderful lunch. I also want to thank our host families again: the tours were great, the food was delicious and our discussion was very informative for the students and enjoyable. Thank you for welcoming us into your homes and taking the time to talk to students from Drake University! I am looking forward to hearing the thoughts of the students and the comments.

  1. I always find it exciting when the local children wave at us and chase the bus on our long journeys around Uganda. Their smiles are definitely mood boosters after spending hours on "Big Blue"!

  2. It was really nice to get out of Kampala and see a different change of scenery. The farmers who hosted us were not only very kind but also very noble in their work. It was great to see the great techniques used by farmers in Uganda.
