Jinja, Uganda, Africa
Jinja, Uganda is very green and along the shore of the Victoria Nile even more. The soil is very rich with red clay and along the street, one can find piles of clay with a stack of hay in the middle with a fire burning to harden the brick.
Mukono was the destination for missionary work that involved designing a clinic for the elderly. We arrived in Kampala, then drove to Mukono shortly after. The landscape was mostly covered in greenery and in-between, rich red soil, perfect for brick. It was difficult to sleep that first night. The mattress was very crinkly, reminding me of old backyard furniture wrapped in plastic. I was up all night and as soon as I saw daylight coming through the window, I walked out to the front of the house and saw layers of landscape in hues of purple.
