I paraded through villages...
...and towns with cow in tow.
I thought how FFA would have been somehow fun.
I bartered at Wakiso Central Market and bought 41591561 Irish potatoes.
I closed out the long day by participating in the brutal slaughtering of my well-trained, dear friend.
I went in on a spur of the moment feast for the kids here in the village. I wish I filmed the kids as they saw us parade the cow into the village, knowing that they would be eating MEAT! That has been THE ONLY conversation for the rest of the day. It makes sense seeing as how their two main meals a day are posho and beans (posho: ground corn flour). I have paid for the cow and feast out of pocket (from my March budget) for a grand total of 150,000 Ugandan schillings (65 US dollars). If you are reading and would like to “feed” the Bulabakulu Village a fresh beef dinner, just click on the yellow donate button on the right side of this page and denote that the donation is for Mr. Cow.
After today I really feel for Chick-Fil-A’s campaigning cows. Eat mor chikin people! …for real, the slaughter is much more manageable.
