Uganda Photo Essay

It’s really hard to describe the feelings you get when traveling through Uganda. My mom did a great job of eloquently writing about her experience. Since I’m not as great with words, I’ll share our experience through pictures. Note: these are of varying quality, since they were taken on different devices (phones and cameras).
