Pura Vida!

I was in Tortuguero on the day before independence and the performances are so great and so different from Uganda’s where the occassion is about the military marching. Here, ordinary people took time to make constumes and children really look up to the day as they are involved in the day’s performances.People show love for their country. Most Independence days in Uganda, people go about their business and it is almost a government/NRM show which gives one a real reflection of feelings of Ugandans towards this day
