An Aussie Night

Filed under: Trips,Uganda — pearsey @ 6:01 pm

Here’s some Uganda updates.
James and Solomon, two young Ugandans, came over one night for an “Aussie” night. I got them watching a game of Aussie Rules – Hawthorn v Western Bulldogs. They loved that – I don’t think they moved the whole time it was on. Then they went back and started watching it all over again! After that we shared in some goat stew I’d cooked up. I cooked it up on the sigilly, bought the meat at a local African butcher and bought all the produce for it at the local market. It wasn’t bad, but the goat was a bit tough!
After that we introduced James and Solomon to good ol’ Aussie milo and Tim Tams, with the obligatory Tim Tam Slam thrown in for a bit of fun! The idea of that is to drink your drink through the tim tam, finally slamming down the tim tam just before it melts into your drink as an irretrievable mess! Had some fun with that one, the boys picked that up remarkably quickly and we had no accidents!
Finally we topped the night off by giving the boys an Aussie soccer shirt. They were pretty happy guys at the end of the night!
