Robbie Burns Dinner

Traveling to Uganda, I really never would have expected to find myself at a Formal Scottish Dinner celebrating the 237th anniversary of Robbie Burns birth. but that is where I found myself last night on the eve of the national Holiday here. Poems and Songs, a Ceremony of the Haggis, traditional Bagpipes, a toast to the Lassies and a Reply to the Toast to the Lassies, Scottish dancing and more were all part of a great night at the Robbie Burns Dinner. Speeches were made, Scotch was passed and it was great fun to meet a wide variety of people. There is a strong Scottish influence here in Uganda which was obvious last night. pics below of Randy, Lisa and Kenzie McLoud out in their full Scottish wear for the dinner!
