The Flamboyant Tree

Lovers of all the flora and fauna here in Uganda will be pleased to know that the Flamboyant Tree is in full bloom.  Jinja hasn’t had rain since Christmas and the mosquitoes are rampant (my forearms look like mountain ranges) Seemingly everyone has colds and bad chests from all the dust……….but are all happy to be alive!! and to quote many, “We are pushing”.
