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!


Theparty was still going strong when Kim, Julie I and a few others were the early birds leaving the Robbie Burns Dinner around 1 am, the hardiest Scots and Ugandans from our group stayed out until 4 am! ~all for now C

Location:Kampala, Uganda
