1. Dirty clothes and dirty feet and legs are normal to us but sure stand out in the majestic Ministry of Health building!
2. Flipflops and T shirts have become standard wear but we sure look shabby!
3. Cheese and meats options at the grocery store made me want to dance around.
4. A slightly air-conditioned store made me linger.
5. I felt the need to shower and dress up just to go out of the house in Kampala.
6. I forgot I was in Uganda momentarily. (Couldn't remember WHAT country I was in, but Kampala isn't the Uganda I know!)
7. It took us 20 minutes to decide what to eat at the food court in a mall (more than ONE option?! In Gulu, if you go to a restaurant, you don't need the menu, you just ask what they have that day because they likely only have ingredients for ONE dish, if that.).
8. I frantically looked around for the fans in the home we're staying in: NONE! But it's cool at night! You don't need them!
Kampala looks very different too - it's a city of hills, it's much more lush right now thanks to Lake Victoria (Gulu, we now realize, is BROWN in the middle of dry season), there are more diverse birds...
Culture shock within our own country! ;-P
