King Muloki, RIP

Did you have Monday, September 8, 2008 off? We did at the last minute. The king of Busoga, King Muloki, died the previous Thursday. This kingdom’s boundaries starts past the town of Jinja at the Victoria Nile River, which you will see mentioned in future posts. According to my guidebook, Busoga kingdom was created in the 20th century as essentially a conglomerate of smaller chiefdoms. Sarah and I ventured into the Nakasero fruit, vegetable and spice market since we had the day free. We found foods ranging from watermelon and eggplant to cloves and vanilla sticks. I bought some ingredients to make a salsa that turned out quite nice. Michiel took a liking I think when he dumped a heap of it on pasta one evening. But he also dumped a can of tomato paste on his pasta, too.
