This past Thursday the GSSAP 2014 team went to dinner at the home of Jeff and Lindsay Opiyo. It was a clear night and a fun evening filled with easy conversation and much discussion on the different aspects of our experience in Uganda so far. We ate Sankofa pizza, played with Remy (an exceptionally cute puppy), listened to Jeff play the guitar, and learned to dance along with one of his songs.

All of us dancing to Jeff's song.
We lined up on two sides; the women danced while the men clapped.
Jeff performing a few end-of-the-evening songs, including "No Woman, No Cry" by Bob Marley. Most everyone joined in singing, making for a relaxed atmosphere.
It was a particularly memorable group dinner because of our connections with Lindsay and Jeff. They have both been great resources, but more than that they have both been great friends to all of us in the program. I know I'm correct in saying that we all loved the evening and look forward to seeing them both again soon.
