I’m about to be away for the next five days, so I thought I’d leave you with this…
Thanks, but I think I'll keep driving...
Ha! I know the place but also, have never yet been tempted to stop. There is also a Tick restaurant in Mutongo. Not sure which sounds worse!
problems of adopting a second language and making it the national language… In Uganda, tick literally translates to, well, ok!
In Ugandan schools, especially Primary (equivalent of grade schools but restricted to ages 6-12yrs) school assignment books, a correct answer is marked with a “tick”… something that looks like a simplified version of the famous Nike swoosh logo.
funny, most Ugandans would also find our perception of tick hilarious
That’s part of what keeps it all fun!
