Sharon’s Introduction

Uganda’s version of the engagement party is an Introduction, where the bride and grooms friends and family come together to be “introduced” to the new couple. In essence, it’s a eight hour ceremony with lots of dancing and costume changes, and even more speeches (that no one translated). If you don’t know what’s going on, it’s an odd mix of amazing and torturous. But, we got to wear gomesi. Congratulations, Sharon!
