Whats life like in Uganda?

So as some of you might know I am currently in Uganda, Kampala. Well kinda, seeing as though i'm in more the smaller areas of im guessing kampala. This is my second time here and the difference in lifestyle is quite significant. Have any of you been to South Africa, Johannesburg or Africa?

Most people think if you from Africa its all the same, but surprisingly enough, its not. 

With my readers being  from all around the globe, I was wondering do you have any questions you would like me to answer on life in Uganda? where to shop, eat, what to pack or even just random questions... I'm open to answer them. (Perhaps even in a video?

I'm in a mood to spice things up around here and while being on this new adventure this seems to be the perfect time to try new things, right?.

Drop me a question below and be part of this new adventure. 

Midweek reading

It has been a pretty decent week so far, things seem to be coming along quite nicely, fun boat trip, fun and delicious dinner cooked by Jorge and tons of dancing. I will admit I have been soooooo homesick but finally its more of a missing the family sick which is pretty normal right?. Plus you guys know I am so tight with the family. 

Another thing I have been seriously missing is our food, South Africans can cook like pro's! But I will say on that note I have finally started cooking, if your saw my instagram account I was thrilled. Nothing like a home cooked meal I tell you. But before this seriously gets into a long post about food lets get into some midweek reading.

Midweek Reading : From Uganda

spring 2016 makeup, dutch bread, south african wedding and smores.

Its been a pretty stressful last few's days, from deaths in my family and being so far away and trying to settle in, all the way to having no internet for a few days. But thankfully there's things that always gets me smiling, seeing all your posts and catching up is always a bright spot. I mean truth is you have to find the positive parts to basically everything and I am always trying to remind myself how blessed I am to have opportunities like this (even when my face looks all sour hahaha).

By the way have you ever noticed that if you have a social network off day by choice its so much easier than when the universe says nope no network for you.... I mean seriously what is up with that. But things are moving along in the right direction and for that I am grateful.
