Where to begin... My experience was diversified, eye opening, adaptive, uncertain at times, full of love, joy, dancing, singing and a warm welcome from the locals. Honestly, too much to be able to fit on this page. Eyes and attention will be on you constantly if your a muzungu (white person) but not in a bad way, so you learn to adapt to the constant attention from others. Ugandan staple foods include; matooke(cooked unripe bananas), rice, beans, peanut sauce, posho( corn cake). My heart and passion during this experience has been at San Martino Primary School.

Es un voluntariado que se hace en diferentes lugares, así que se puede interactuar con varias personas, para mí los más lindos, atentos, cariñosos y comprensivos son los niños, los adoro sinceramente. me hubiera gustado muchísimo pasar más tiempo en San Martino School-, siento que el tiempo fue muy corto, así como me hubiera gustado poder hacer más, es un poquito dificil entender la diferencia del ritmo de vida. También debo decir que aunque mi inglés se limita a unas pocas frases, en especial al llegar, fueron tolerantes y me ayudaron aprender muchísimo. Muchísimas gracias.
