I recently had the advantage of traveling to Uganda to meet up with an old friend Jennifer from nursing school. We went to a wedding that lasted the entire day.  Lots of colors, music, dancing and hot sun.  I would say there were about 1000 people there, a good chunk of which were kids from the surrounding area waiting just to eat.

Nome Garden Tour 2014

This past summer I took a garden class.  It is not the same as growing stuff in the midwest.  You don't plant stuff in the ground.  Everything goes in the green house and you start your seedlings in the spring around April.  Every year they have a tour that goes around to the various gardeners who have put energy into a garden.  (Some of my pictures made it in the paper!)
