SISTER AND COUSIN OF THE BRIDE -- African Beauties

This is the first of a series of photos I'll be putting up from my visit to Africa in July 2010.

 

My cousin found a beautiful African Pearl and, although I knew in advance that I had to go, I got dragged (kickin' and screamin') away from my Okinawa vacation in order to attend his wedding.

 

Did I say wedding ?

 

I went to what I will call THREE WEDDINGS (that is to say, TWO weddings, and a 5 hour RECEPTION on the shores of Lake Victoria), in beautiful Uganda.

 

Standing in for my Cousin's Father who could not make it to represent the Groom's clan in America, I had a great time the whole week I was there !!!

Also coming up...a caption about an unusual aspect of English usage in certain parts of Africa as it relates to what Americans call "The N-Word". I will literally (and culturally) spell it out for you in the next batch of photos.

 

This will give those who find my many of my captions "borderline-questionable" in matters of race and culture even MORE reason to blow steam out their ears. Stay tuned !
