DARTS WITH KENYANS
On my way to Aberdare Forest in Kenya, we stopped along the road at a curio shop to pick up some souvenirs, and Joe, my driver, sat with the shopkeepers while I shopped. Everyone’s so friendly and kind in the shop, and I’m overwhelmed with choices of batiks and carvings to take home to commemorate my first time in Africa. I noticed out in the back that there was a dart board and hay bails, so I went out to see what was going on and asked to join in. I bought all the locals a Tusker (the local beer), and we played darts together, talked, and enjoyed a beer… Nowhere in my life have I experienced anything like that, just being so welcomed into a game with the locals, and it was such a great time! I’m so impressed by their pride and their culture, and I was fortunate to just be able to enjoy some unexpected fun with them!
This is our very first episode traveling through Uganda, the Pearl of Africa. We see mountain gorillas in Bwindi and enjoy the busy city of Kampala and other surprises along the way.
You’ve heard of Ugandan orphanages and missionaries who travel there each year; This is the flip side of Uganda. Meet the local people, eat with them, party with them, go to university with them and do everything they do. This was an unforgettable experience. We summarized it in a 28-minute episode that will leave you in a state of travel envy. Enjoy episode 1 compliments of the Culture Club Show, and contact us to travel with us.
15 COWS AND A DIAMOND RING
Crossing the border from Rwanda into Uganda, I go through the Customs office and notice a handsome man across the plexiglass. After processing and stamping my passport, I hear a deep African voice saying, “Sharon Lee… Sharon Lee”… Out walks a tall, handsome, and very dark gentleman in a white shirt who immediately grabs both of my hands and says to me, looking into my eyes, “I have 15 cows. You are beautiful. Stay here and be with me, and you will be my wife!” WOW… Well, I can’t ‘wear’ 15 cows on my ring finger, but that’s their way in East Africa, offering a dowry of money or cattle to take a woman’s hand in marriage. He’s so handsome and sweet; I enjoyed the compliment but explained that I must go on with my tour and on to Uganda. We still keep in touch, and to this day, the texts and emails all say, “Hello, my wife”… We’ll see….
