This is Malta. We found him seated alone looking towards the horizon like a young man deep in thought wondering about his future or one trying to digest his thick problems. I found it awesome that a young man like him was okay being by himself in what’s a quiet, beautiful space.
Rocks are all over Pakele in Adjumani. Here Wright and I were standing at the top most point of one of the large rocks surrounded by more rocks. It’s secluded, quiet, calm and it offers a great view of the sub county. Being here was quite refreshing to the soul.
The short trip to Adjumani worked out better than I thought it would. We managed to get some good shots which I am itching to show you. First off though, I would like to thank Namanya Wright, a friend who was kind enough to host me at his place and who also dedicated his entire weekend to show me around a few places in Adjumani. Asante sana Wright! In the mean time, please take a peek at some of the panoramic shots I took with Wright’s Techno W4 phone. These were shot in Pakele subcounty.
These were shot on the evening of 13.11.2016 in Mutungo, Kirombe in the beautiful natural evening sunlight.
I travel to Adjumani tomorrow night. Adjumani is a town in Adjumani District in Northern Uganda. It’s approximately 460kms from Kampala, the capital city in the central region. A friend tells me it’s about an 8 hour drive from Kampala.
I’ve always wanted to travel to different parts of Uganda and take pictures there but having no camera and having no resources
to spare for basics like transport, food and accommodation had always been a stumbling block. But with the Nikon here, after a long intense waiting period, and with some money saved up, I am now ready to start making those short trips around the country every after a couple of months.
Though I’ve wanted to travel, I am not a fan of traveling to new places for a short period because it takes me a while to process and fully enjoy new environments. I accept this challenge though; I want to throw myself out there, see and interact more with what Uganda has to offer and I want to snap all that with a camera.
Why Adjumani? A couple of reasons.
1.I have a friend working and staying there, he has agreed to host me for the weekend and free accommodation is always a plus.
2.I have never been to Adjumani before which is the perfect location because I want my eyes to see something they have not seen before for a change. This challenges me to create.
3.I want to step out of town for a while and not have to sit in traffic jam for what usually feels like an eternity for once regardless of how short it lasts.
I can’t wait to find out what will come out of the trip or if anything will come out of it at all. Either way, you still get an update.
Nsenene – Grasshoppers are a Ugandan Delicacy, what is called Grasshoppers here are actually Bush Crickets, no matter what you call them – grasshoppers, bush crickets, or Nsenene in Luganda – they are a real treat for Ugandans during the Rainy Seasons.
You will not find Nsenene on the Menu at most restaurants, but in Ugandan pubs , they can be had and of course you will need some beer or waragi to flush them down.
Now, you can even find them packaged on the shelves of grocery stores, including in convenient cans at about 2 usd each. Nsenene- Grasshoppers are an excellent source of protein and scientists predict that we will all be eating insects in one form or another in the future…
