What FUN my friend Mary and I had today!  I played hooky from the gallery, and we toured the west end of the Island.  Our last stop was a devine lunch at Half Shell on Barnes Bay at Viceroy, one of my favourite lunch spots.  One of our first stops was the new Uhuru Gallery, specializing in African Art.  It’s a beautiful gem of a gallery, and I hope you go to visit.  Located in The Bedney Plaza on the main road, it’s full of sculpture, jewellery, and paintings, mostly from Africa.  The owner,  Evelyne Apire-Hodge is Ugandan, and has travelled far and wide through Africa for some of these treasures.  Mary bought me an early birthday gift today of this wonderful little bicycle – it’s made from scrap wire by street children in Kampala.  A great addition to the art scene of the Island!

    PS – do you happen to know the name/origin of the type of masks they have on the wall at the Pumphouse – they are very unique.
    Hope you are well,
    Best,
    Ellen
