So, as I’ve made a brief trip home to the states, I’ve realized some evidence that I’ve been living in Uganda for awhile now.
1. When the meal was given to us in the plane, I looked over the many items included on the tray, and my eyes lit up when I saw the “digestive biscuits.”
2. Whenever I see someone wearing shorts or a short skirt (above the knees) I get a bit disturbed.
3. The word “disturbed” is the only word that seems to accurately describe my reaction to number two, above.
4. I was constantly finding myself walking on the left side, causing some crowd confusion in the airport.
5. I have accidentally driven on the left side of the road.
6. Every time I turn on a faucet to wash my hands and hot water comes out, I get a little bit surprised.
7. I get overwhelmed with giant menus.
8. After washing some clothes, I was trying to figure out what “that smell” was…it was fabric softener.
9. In the midst of conversation I realize my attempts to communicate by moving my eyebrows or saying “mmmm” isn’t as effective as actual words.
**Ironic reality: The Internet at my house in Uganda is more reliable than the Internet at my parents’ house.**
I am surprised about the internet bit…….. That is so amaising. On the other hand, the other points state that your used to the Ugandan life style.
You use to drive on the left side of the road all the time!! Haha
