Matooke And Future Plans

Tomorrow I depart early for Kampala, where I will be meeting a friend and travelling to South Sudan to witness the secession, and the birth of South Sudan as an independent nation. This means the blog may fall a little quiet, but don’t worry. I will be back soon, and with plenty of stuff to post. In the meantime, depending on internet access, I will likely be all over Twitter like a fungus, so if you want to read annoyingly short updates from me please head over to http://twitter.com/#!/willboasephoto. Otherwise keep an eye on the blog and I will update it as circumstances allow.

I will leave you with a picture from the weekend, when I wasn’t working but I had my camera knocking around anyway:

A girl peeling matooke bananas in one of Jinja's many alleyways. Matooke, a solid savory cake of mashed, boiled and steamed banana, is one of Southern and Western Uganda's staple foods. I used to loathe it, but it won me over eventually.

  2. Matooke will always win you over. I tried so hard to resist it but after about 3 months, I could hardly imagine a meal without it. Safe travels in Sudan!
