Uganda: Lake Bunyonyi for New Year's!

New Years found us back in Uganda at Lake Bunyonyi in the South West. Lake Bunyonyi is the second deepest lake in Africa. We met up with 28 other PCV’s and stayed on an island in the lake. It was a breathtaking place! The island provided us with sturdy tents and good Ugandan food. Hailey and I took out a dug-out canoe one morning and attempted to navigate the lake. We didn’t make it far because the canoe was too difficult to steer. But we had fun trying.

On New Year’s Eve, the manager of the island brought over some Ugandans from another island to dance and sing for us. They would do traditional dances and take a break where we would then dance to Ugandan and American pop and hip-hop music. The last several hours were Americans and Ugandans dancing together. It was really fun to see.
