A visit with Agnes to Acholya

For several years, Agnes and I have planned to go to her family's home at Acholya. We finally made the trip in February. Three of her five sons went with us. It took 3 hours - on two vehicles - to reach the place. Then we had a 20-minute walk in the hot sun. It was my first time to Teso District. I enjoyed meeting her two brothers and their families.
