May 15, 2011 6:00 PM--Bushenyi Visit

I just got back from spending the weekend in Bushenyi staying with Emily and Ryan.  It was a lot of fun.  I also got to see Bailey’s site and I finally met her new puppy, who is so cute and very playful.  Today Emily, Ryan and I went to Ishaka, which is a town just past Bushenyi Town.  It’s only about a 10 to 15 minute drive.  We were trying to get cheese, but the only supermarket that sells it was all out.  So we did some shopping and then we went back to their house to make lunch, deep dish pizza…mmmm.  While we were waiting for the pizza to cook, Ryan decided to try to get an avocado out of their avocado tree.  It quickly turned into quite to ordeal.  The avocado was really high up so he was trying to tie two sticks together to try to knock it down, but just hitting it didn’t make it fall.  So then he fastened a knife to the end of the sticks and tried to cut it off (I know it sounds a little scary but it was secure).  However, that didn’t work either.  Next was a pair of scissors and a string to operate the scissors.  Also didn’t work.  In the end, he basically lassoed it with a piece of rope and the stick and he yanked it down, but it took quite a bit of effort and about 40 minutes to get it down.  And after all that, we don’t think it is ripe enough to eat yet.
