DPP #14 An Introduction

In Uganda, when a man and a woman decide to get married, they begin their engagement with something called and introduction.  It is at the introduction that the man either pays or begins to pay the dowry.  An introduction is a huge affair...usually as big or almost as big as the church wedding.  The men wear the Kanzu...a traditional long white shirt/robe thing... and the women wear the Gomice... a bright, shiny traditional dress.
Tomorrow, the daughter of the family on our compound is being introduced. 
 So, I will be putting on the gomice. 
The great thing?  It is designed to make a woman look fat...
...because fat is beautiful...
This place rocks!
