It started to pour as I was starting to go home after the meeting with the borrowers yesterday afternoon. I hadn’t had lunch, so I popped into the nearest restaurant, a rough-and-ready lunch spot with a typical menu of your choice of meat with matooke, rice, cassava, etc. Chicken with matooke and rice, a fruit salad (an extravagance!) and a bottle of water cost 3,600/= (a hair over $2). Which might have been a clue.
I decided it would be wise to stay home near reliable plumbing today, my own personal plumbing being a bit touch and go. Bleah.
