Getting a glimpse of the country

 Today I got my camera out on the way out to the co-op and back again.  I tried to capture some of the traditional scenes of this country.  The two most dramatic sights today were the Ankole Long-Horned cow that is indigenous to Uganda and used to plow fields and two Vervet monkeys; I was able to capture a picture of the Ankole cows, but the Vervet's were too shy to be photographed.
