The Porter's Future Home in Lira
I'm thinking some potted and hanging plants, window boxes, maybe shutters--would do wonders for this baby. Ben is convinced that's a banana tree on the left side and we have no idea what the mud structure on the right is. I'm just happy to have electricity and running water, a gas stove, fridge, two bedrooms (we already ordered a second mosquito to protect any guests from malaria), and I can garden. There is a field next to the house that I'm told I won't have energy to plant. I have been hoping for a place to create beauty (and food) gardening--or as the Ugandans call it, "digging." Depending on what's in the mud thing--don't you think the porch--with a screen over it, could be a perfect place to sit and smoke hookah, talk over the day and drink African red tea?
