Short-circuit in Mbale
In Mbale, in Eastern Uganda, for five day peace/electoral journalism seminar. Rough going--no electricity in hotel most of the time means depending on battery power for my seminar; no electricity also means no hot water, which is no big deal since the water pressure is too low to power a shower at any rate. Don't get me started on the food. Still, my spirits have been lifted by the seminar participants, who are interested, engaged, and energetic. They're out reporting on peace/electoral radio stories this afternoon. I look forward to hearing their completed pieces, if the power holds out long enough to finish editing. I also look forward to my merciful return to Kampala Friday night.
