Tour Of Uganda II. – The Girl With Bananas

Where the girl with bananas from Uganda has disappeared?

She was magnificent. Our bizarre pecking order didn´t seem to impress her at all. In a minute she was back to her original task: “Hey, Chinese, buy nice bananas” she shouted at our Japanese friend. Her cheeky comment disarmed me, and I burst into laughter. ” I am not Chinese, I don’t want your nice bananas“, said my friend.

It is unforgivable that we didn’t take a picture of this young lady. Her peculiar, gutsy approach gave our trip an unmistakable, vivid tone. She was our little secret agent, showing up from nowhere, steadily selling her nice bananas.

Uganda and the people of Uganda – they were often suspicious, but not hostile. When the initial discomfort vanished, the seriousness of their faces usually broke into disarming smiles. And doubly was this true of the children.
