Ghosts and Goblins All About! (30.10.10)
This past weekend was a very different Halloween in Uganda. It is odd to be in a different country that doesn’t recognize a holiday you have grown up with all your life. I find that even though the country doesn’t recognize certain holidays our PCV class and the classes ahead of us all get together to celebrate.
This Halloween a few people from my class got together with the people who have been here for 6 months and 1 year in Kampala to celebrate. The four of us from our PCV class who came all went out to dinner together at a local Ethiopian restaurant. It was sooo good – we had a spicy chicken platter and a vegetarian platter.
We had a rooftop party at the Annex Hotel that we usually all stay at when we go into Kampala. It was a blast to see all the people in the group dressed up and to see what they came up with for costumes! Out of my friends we had Bear Grills, a Blues Brother, Rosie the Riveter and an Annex maid! We had a blast all dressing up and spending time together.
