Yesterday was our 50th Anniversary celebration.  The service activity during the day for me was a little disorganized.  I was supposed to be teaching life skills, but there were too many volunteers in my group and it was just a little unorganized.  The other projects seemed to go pretty well and the school was really excited to have us there.  Because some of us live so far from Luweza and the reception was going to end late, a lot of us got rooms at the training center for the night.  So after the service activity was finished, we went back to the training center, showered and got ready.  The reception was awesome!  I’m pretty sure everyone had a really good time and it went until the wee hours of the night.

Today we had homestay cooking.  In our language groups we had to pick one of our homestay houses and we were going to cook lunch for us and the family.  We went food shopping in the morning and then we went to Ryan and Emily’s house after that.  We made spaghetti, meat sauce (with ground beef!), bread, rice (because according to our language trainer, we need some Ugandan food), green beans, and banana and passion fruit salad for dessert.  It took a long time for us to cook, but it was worth it.  It was amazing and their family really seemed to enjoy it.  I’m pretty sure our language group is going to try to get together and make meals like that as often as we can once we get to site.
