Alfred and Faith's Wedding!

I have known Faith for a few years now and she is such a sweet friend to me. She is the one who taught me how to say "I'm going to beat you" in Lugandan, as well as "I'm going to pinch you" and "I'm going to kick you"....we really did love each other...we were just two very competitive Skipbo players :)

Either way...She was married this weekend to Alfred and I had the opportunity to attend.

I traveled to Western Uganda - which was quite a journey...one boda-boda, one taxi, one bus and about 9 hours later Joseline and I finally arrived and Faith was soooo excited to see me there that she was screaming and jumping up and down. I think she woke up all her bridesmaids and her uncle because of it!

The day of the wedding, Faith had me doing all of the toe and finger nail painting (french tip, I might add)...quite humorous in and of itself if you know anything about my finger painting abilities :)

The wedding was scheduled for 11am but in true Ugandan fashion it started at 12:30. It was great fun!

Here are some of the pictures from the day!

What a wonderful weekend! She was beautiful! I think you truly showed your loyalty as a friend by actually going through with the journey (remember coming to see me is just a plane and a bus ride away.) Skipbo has the ability of making such good friends.
