After the meetings we did some shopping for the school in Kasese. It is a busy, dusty town. We had a respite at the Jambo Café that I had read about before I left. A good latte and oatmeal cookie was a treat. http://bradtugandaupdate.wordpress.com/2014/01/27/jambo-cafe-kasese/

We picked up a huge speaker that was being repaired. It is used by the performance band. We, well not me, had to negotiate the ride home. For both of us to travel 55 km and a 3’ x 4’ speaker, it was 40,000 Ush or about $16.00 – once again I got the front seat!Back at the school I got a bit of break for lunch and then we started in with the bracelet and earring making. Well it was a frenzy. It is so much fun when everyone wants to do something. I am bringing home some of their treasures – you’ve been forewarned. This weekend they are going to make a new batch of beads and then probably by Thursday they will be ready to make some necklaces. Any money that is made from selling the items in Canada will be sent back to the student as well as being used to replenish supplies.
