Not only does Lola's blog make my blog seem lame, it makes my life seem lame. I can't read her accounts of living and teaching in Uganda without questioning nearly everything I think is important, difficult or worth doing. She shares her brother's gift for describing scenes with emotional intensity, and engages people with the love and open heart of an angel.
Highlights: connecting with her students, a personal experience of political upheaval, attending a Ugandan funeral and a wedding, seeing the need in the streets, reflecting on what she didn't know before and loneliness.
