This weekend S1 was in town for work meetings, S2 came from Kisumu to hang out Friday night, and my buddy S3 came from Kampala. S3 had a much longer bus ride getting here than I expected, so we only got to hang out for 24 hours, but we had a lot of fun. Vegan black bean burgers and chips (UK), a hike in the Kakamega Forest full of monkeys and big loud birds with S1 and S3 , dinner at the Golf, a good run with George today, <i>24 Hour Party People</i>, <i>Take Shelter</i>, and <i>Nuts in May</i> all projected on an extra bedsheet. For any hiking/environmental friends, I highly recommend <i>Nuts in May</i>. It's a 1976 made-for-BBC-TV movie by Mike Leigh about self-righteous vegetarians who go camping. Basically, me. And it's amazing how all the environmental concerns the vegetarians raise could have been brought up last week. It's slow, but it has definitely moments of brilliance.
Since S3's ride from Kampala is so long, we'll meet in the middle next time: http://hairylemonuganda.com/
