With a new life comes new accessories. I knew life in Karamoja would be very different from my life in San Diego, but I never thought to be so pleasantly surprised by local inventions or conveniences that would assist in that transition.

Not yet! The Wright family made it safely back to Karamoja from Mbale. The rumored broken bridge has eroded on one side, but is still cautiously passable by all types of vehicles.
