The Fine Print (in pictures): Part I

We met three years ago

Mukono LDS Branch
(back before color photos existed. it's been that long.)

We ate kinyanya and talked . . . and mostly, that was it.  
I went back to the US, and he stayed in Uganda. 

Three years later, the kinyanya were gone (= unripe)
but he was there at the airport to pick me up

he was there to help me at the orphanage, and with my classes, and with the books

he was pretty handy with a spear

and with a bike

and on the farm

 and did I mention monkey hunting??? (finding . . . not killing . . .)

impossibility collided with reality . . . that sometimes happens 
in Africa.
