Market Day

Yesterday we went to Fort Portal to do some grocery shopping for the week. We stopped at the market to get vegetables- mango, oranges, bananas, carrots, cauliflower, green beans, squash, lemons, apples, millet flour, and oh yes how could I forget- live grasshoppers. You know the ones you see outside with huge wings and long whiskers flying around, well here they are a delicacy that only come once a year. We picked some up on the way home, and they were fried and eaten for supper. Anne had pretty much force fed me a small spoonful of them a couple of weeks ago, and I think that is enough for me for the year. I still can’t get over the fact that you eat the whiskers, and the thing has eyes too. Eeck!!!
