African time is beginning to affect me. My friend Derick was going to take me to Tororo to visit his family yesterday. We were supposed to leave at ten in the morning. But by ten I was not yet ready. I went out to tell Derick. He wasn’t even dressed, and had started washing his clothes. So I decided to trek into town to do some small errands while I waited. We agreed to meet up at the internet café at Janam supermarket. I went to the ATM. The ATM was not working. These mysterious technical failures usually last for only about ten minutes, but I decided to take breakfast across the street while waiting. And read the newspaper all the way through. By the time Derick appeared at Janam, I had only just sat down. And it took us another twenty minutes to get going from there. In the end, we only arrived about two hours late.
