Unlikely #photochallenge #uganda

Unlikely is this

If you know me, you know I have tried to work in Liberia, No. Africa, Congo and So. Africa.  I never thought of Uganda, the Nile or mosquito netting as my “likely.”

 

The photo challenge this week is “Unlikely”

These pictures are all taken at Fort Murchison. A beautiful get-away and great place to enjoy an African Safari.

From the Iron Donkey I watch

a normal afternoon in Gulu

two boys

four eyes

 traffic

people, animals, motorcycles

*iron donkeys, cars and trucks

 

 

 

The Iron Donkey is a guest house where we stay in Gulu. The iron donkey is also what Westerners consider a bicycle.

 

 

 

The Road #atozchallenge #poetry #children #uganda

Red dirt road to the village

river claims it eve’s storm

barely make it home

no light for feet or tires

prayer alone to guide us

if I wax poetic

I can look over my back

road over- run with soldiers

entire families gone

children walk through blood

red stain never removed

I can look forward

hope in future’s eyes

children studying hard

families sacrifice for school funds

Uganda’s tomorrow on the horizon

needing prayer to guide her

Today is the day that A to Zers will write about the letter “R.” Poetry allows for reflection.  I hope as you read about the lives of determined children in Uganda that you will understand a bit more about the Acholi tribe that can trace themselves back to Noah.
