March 4, 2011

It still amazes me how much American culture is here in Uganda.  My homestay family listens to music on the radio a lot and today I heard both The Spice Cirls and Justin Bieber.  They also like to try to put on the TV when we eat dinner (if the power is on).  Most of the time it is news.  I find it really interesting being here and watching the news about all the uprisings in Africa and the arab world.  It seems so much closer to home.

I had quite an intense language lesson today.  We reviewed everything we have learned so far.  I'm actually kind of getting it.  I can't wait for language immersion.  That will be our first chance to get away from here and fully engulf ourselves in the language.
