Mihingo Lodge

To celebrate the end of our third workshop, and Ben's imminent departure, David, Ben, Joan and I went to Mihingo Lodge in Lake Mburo National Park for a couple of days. Perched high up on rocky outcroppings were our safari tents, looking out over the acacia-covered landscape. Down below was a salt lick, and various animals came and went during the day - mostly impalas, waterbucks, warthogs and zebras - still, it was just about perfect to unwind and debrief in such magnificent surroundings. It provided space and quiet in which to think about all that had gone on, and the challenges which still await us. After a couple more days in Mbarara to pack up the
sewing supplies and our belongings, we have come in to Kampala, bringing Alice with us. Today we will introduce her to some of the craft markets where we have made connections in the past, hoping that they will be willing to take some of the Bitengye items on consignment, or better yet, to buy them outright. We'll keep you posted.
