Goodbye Africa

August 06, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

It's July 25th, our last day in Africa.  We start the morning by visiting the International School that Aunt Cathy works at as a librarian.  We take the grand tour of the library and grounds then head back to our Kampala home to pack up (and catch some last minute bird photos!).  My cousin Eric's birthday is in a few days so we have an early birthday dinner and cake to celebrate the occasion, HAPPY BIRTHDAY ERIC!  After dinner Eric, Chris and I head to an outdoor lounge that is on top of the Garden City Shopping Center (photo of Garden City on a previous blog: http://www.emilyredondo.com/blog/2013/7/wolves-football-team ).  There we found a "Traditional Afro Fusion" band called Janzi Band, check them out: https://www.facebook.com/janzibanduganda .  This 7-piece band incorporated saxophone next to traditional instruments, a solid and energetic rhythm section, keyboardist/dj and awesome lead vocals by vibrant and fun Jemimah Sanju.  It was a great send off; a reminder that because some people do things differently than us that doesn't mean they are wrong, it's what makes this life crazy beautiful.    xoxo, emily
