Day 3 at the Homestay. We went on a walk with the homestay hosts yesterday afternoon while the service for the Bishop continued until 6 PM. Though the sights in the walk were good, talking with the hosts up the hill was a more fun activity. I met a girl named Mariam on the way up. She tested my knowledge of the local language and she asked me questions about the types of classes we have in the United States. When we reached the top of the hill, Iden, Goddie, Ivana, Julien, Christine, and I had a fun time trying all sorts of tricks with wooden poles and gymnastics. On the way down, Iden (my homestay) and I ran down most of the hill and back to the school. After evening tea, Iden and I walked home. We had dinner shortly after we got home, and then Iden and his four sisters taught me the National Anthem of Uganda. After, we wrote poems and made them into songs which was really fun because Iden’s sisters would make fun of the way he sings, and then we would all laugh. We went on laughing and singing for about 2 hours. Then we went to sleep. This morning Iden and I ran to school, which was tiring but fun. The Groton group continued the morning by teaching three different computer classes of S3. In conclusion, this day was probably the best day so far, in my point of view.
