Uganda: African road

Gracious ladies carrying unbelievable loads on their heads, seem to glide along the road – firewood, water containers, baskets full of fruits.

Matoke ready for dispatch

Matoke-laden bicycles trying hard to keep their balance. The green banana, mixed with flour, is the staple food of Uganda – rice being mostly for the rich.

And the guys, often idle along the road, unless they are washing their precious motorcycles in a river or a puddle after the rain. But everywhere, when they spot the wazungu racing past in their car, big smiles and waves.
