SISTER AND COUSIN OF THE BRIDE -- African Beauties

    Newer Older

    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 !

      Oh Wow! Beautiful girls! I was in Uganda in July. It's a wonderful country. It was my fourth visit there!

      GREG --- Four times, huh ? I envy you ! I was there in July, as well --- arrived about 12 hours after the terrorist bombing in Kampala, and stayed for a week. Like you, my cousin "The Groom" has also visited there many times over the past several years.

      They are beauties. Their skin looks smooth and glowing. Great portrait! I hope they get a chance to visit Flickr.

      We were in the west near Fort Portal when the bombing happened. Your family must have been concerned about you going to Kampala after that.
