I lectured to 150 primary school students at 9am. They wore blue uniforms and seemed pretty attentive. Without any preparation I talked about listening, music, sound and my background. We made a little piece out of singing a few notes and clapping, with music notation and a kind of sonogram representation on the chaulkboard. There was no electricity so I could not plug in my speakers, so I walked around with my computer to show them loon sounds and play it for them. It all seemed to go well and a bunch of them came up to me at the end and asked for URLs for music and software.
Then we went downtown so Larry could meet with a government official about a TATS program, and had lunch at a nice cafe where I had African tea and a chicken burger. They were both very good.
We next went to the dance troupe’s place, which is very beautiful, but were unable to meet with them. Since that was canceled I had time to go to the Uganda museum which was very interesting. I hope to get some pictures up here next.
We came back to the guesthouse and I slept for several hours and then had dinner, bananas, beans, rice, and the others had pork. Joanne is from NY and Jim is a math prof from Hawaii.
The power just blew out in a big wind so I had to retype all that and there is now a candle burning in the room.
