Street Light, Uganda


On the way to the game park we stopped at a gas station to buy drink, use the pit latrine, and stretch our legs. The light post caught my attention. What fascinates me about much of the scenery in Uganda (and this is probably true of most third world countries) is the age and wear of everything considered technological. This isn’t meant as a criticism, but it does stand out in stark relief to me, because I live in a country where few things are that old. It is a different mentality, and the part of me that constantly yearns for something simpler in my life finds the mentality that saves and uses everything appealing. Nothing like having less to put into focus what really has value.
