Buena veranda vista

by Lorien E. Menhennett

Veranda view: Dusk, and a little path leading somewhere …

“Drinks” and “hors d’oeuvres” outdoors.

Yesterday I wrote about my wonderful experience staying at Sina Village in Mpigi, Uganda.

As I mentioned in that post, for an extra $10, I got a private veranda and toilet. It was worth every penny, and then some. I spent almost every spare moment out on that veranda.

The outdoor furniture wasn’t anything to write home about. I sat on a white, plastic chair next to heavy, round table covered with a worn, spotted animal hide.

But the views … the views were everything.

Here are several photos taken from my lovely veranda during the 26 hours I spent at Sina Village.

I wish this were the view from where I live …

Sitting on my veranda, enjoying my view of the verdant countryside, and propping up my feet — in their very stylish shoes, of course — after my palliative care presentation at nearby Gombe Hospital.
