It is the rainy season in Uganda and what that entails is a change of many things.
It rains like cats & dogs. There are a number of things that happen and eventually show the presence of the rain.
From transport, to crops, to people, to agriculture virtually everything changes
The landscape gets the feel of lushness. It turns into a gorgeous green.
The roads, the marram roads that is, get slippery but at least the end result is that dust settles down and there is less dust pollution.
For some reason people get happier. I am yet to find the reason why. Maybe because Christmas is around the corner and everyone can be joyful and merry as the year ends.
There are some areas when it rains, it gets flooded because this in the previous life time used to be a wet land.
In November, the other thing is that it is the green grasshopper season.
It is a delicacy of sorts and to be honest it tastes just like prawns. After the grasshopper, has been caught and fried. It has a very rich source of protein.
This is how the delicacy looks like ready to be eaten.
Happy November to you too with love from Uganda
