Uganda A Winter Wonderland?

I never expected to see someone wearing a fur-lined hooded parka within a few miles of the Equator, but that’s exactly what we encountered while driving through Uganda. You might think the young man was just taking advantage of the kindness (?) of strangers by wearing a cast-off coat, but his shiny new motorcycle, up-to-the-minute sneakers, and the clean, unworn condition of the coat itself shows that he’s no pauper.

Actually, he’s dressing appropriately for a drive through the mountains of Uganda, where temperatures can dip into the 30’s (F) at night. We regularly slept in heavy PJ’s under lots of blankets while visiting the mountains while researching Heart of Diamonds.
