We were not deterred by bumpy roads to the Busagazi School on an island in Lake Victoria between Jinja and Kampala, Uganda. We had to alight from the truck and walk the final kilometer or so up a dusty red road to the school site. In the last few months we constructed two classrooms at this school where only one existed before… to serve about 600 students. Since we came on board to help, another Croatian organization has also constructed classrooms. We were warmly greeted by the community even though our visit coincided with a school holiday. An enjoyable day, all in all, drenched in colour and joyful community celebration.
We signed an MOU at the school to provide 48 desks for the new classrooms.
Add a dash if colour to your day with these photos of peacocks on the island of Lokrum, just off the coast from Dubrovnik, Croatia.
I have been drawn to the vibrant colours of the early summer flowers and, like most photographers, can not resist capturing some of these images.
The lilies are in a garden just outside the historic Kingston Customs House buliding built in 1856 at the corner of Brock and King Streets.
The pansies are in a pot on my balcony – loving the weather.
This geranium is on a plant that I have in my living room window. It overlooks the lake and watches the Wolfe Island Ferry come and go. I have had this plant (or an offspring of it) for over five years and it currently has 61 buds and blooms on it. Like me, it is very happy to be living by the lake in Kingston.
And Kingston Market Square behind City Hall, of course.
