Robbie Burns Supper
For a bit of diversion, a group of 7 of us plus a Mildmay director (Caroline MacLeod) went to a Robbie Burns Supper. Every year throughout the world Scots celebrate the birth of Robert Burns on January 25th. In Uganda it is no different. We enjoyed a night of great food (yes, including wonderful Haggis), fascinating conversations (with people from the U.K., Sweden, and Uganda), bagpipes, and Scottish country dancing. Although we were tired from a day at work, we enjoyed ourselves greatly and want to book it with a greater group next year (Lord willing). It did make for a late night though with dancing continuing past when we left at 1:00AM. Wednesday is a holiday with people going different directions. More later.
