Uganda Days 58 & 59: One Last Dinner

It's always a bit of a struggle, trying to follow a super interesting blog post with a fairly average one. What's a regular work week compared to a weekend safari?

The good news is, it hasn't been totally uneventful! Last week I wrote a post about going for dinner to The Bistro, and at the time, I thought it would be the last of my worldly dinners with André, since he was leaving Kampala this week. But luckily, we were able to squeeze in one last dinner yesterday (Tuesday) evening. And because his girlfriend had since arrived in the city, she came along as well. The three of us met at an Indian restaurant called Khana Khazana. We thought it was appropriate, going for Indian food for our last meal—if anyone remembers this far back, the very first dinner we did was at a place called The Great Indian Dhaba. Kind of a full-circle thing, you know?


On a side note, I've realized that most of the restaurants here—at least the ones I've been to—all seem to have some kind of garden attached to them. Not with tables in it or anything, just a garden. It's always lovely, but it just struck me as kind of strange that it was so common. Anyway, there's your random thought for the day.


By all accounts, I had heard that the food at Khana Khazana was much better than at Dhaba. I'd been meaning to try it for weeks. I can now testify that such claims are, in fact, true. We ordered a few different curry dishes, and all of it was delicious.

Clockwise from left: curry, curry, also curry.

All in all I think it was a good way to close off this little tradition we had started over the last couple of months. I'm definitely going to miss having something to look forward to during the week...I might have to start just going on my own for the few weeks I have left here.

Other than that, I haven't got much to tell you. Can you imagine that I have less than four weeks left before I come home? Kind of crazy.

Bit of a short post today, but it can't be helped on a Wednesday I suppose. I'm going to go and make myself a tea and maybe read for a while. Thanks for reading!
