Saturday January 16, 2016

As I wander about the Lira and the road between here and the training room in Loyo I cannot help but be moved by the pure capitalism that exists here.  Lira is a city in North Central Uganda with about 80,000 residents.  There is a main road that traverses through the center of the town that is lined with vendor stalls at the outskirts and becomes wall to wall vendors, on the streets, shops or under a tree in the center of town.  There is also an outside loop to Lira that stays to the edge of town that is also filled with vendors and shops.  As one looks out over the area they can see many residences in the distance along with makeshift shanty's    In the following pictures you will see a group of motorcyclists having maintenance performed on their bikes (boda-boda's) under a tree in the park.  A picuture of a mechanic who has removed the engine and is rebuilding it and a group of men loading concrete cylinders onto a truck.
