Direct Swap - Uganda from Christine

Sometimes you just have to go out on a limb and ask someone if they will send you a card. What is the worst thing that could happen? They say no, which I totally understand, regardless of the reason. Christine belongs to one of the same Postcrossing groups that I do on Facebook and mentioned that she was travelling to Uganda. So I asked her if she wanted to swap. Lucky for me she at least agreed to try. And even luckier, she was successful. Amazingly too, this card arrived in a quick two weeks. The phrase
"Muzungu" means white person. She writes it is not meant in an offensive way at all and it what the kids call out to tourists. She writes they "believe we are all celebrities". I know that experience from travelling through China. Thank you Christine, really appreciate that you found the time to do this for me. Also glad to hear you were happy with the cards I sent in return.
