From Uganda to Wales
Find out about the personal views and opinions of Davidii Kakande, a Ugandan who's now settled in north Wales. He enjoys the life here, but is still intrigued with the way we live our lives.
"Life in North Wales is good and enjoyable... good roads, good pubs... people are enjoying what is available.
When I was still in Uganda, my friend told me that people don't have anywhere to build houses so if our father built the first floor, the son do the second and the grandson do the third one.
I miss Ugandan food...like steamed banana, cassavas, sweet potato. People here in Wales they enjoy chips, burgers and fish.
People here in North Wales, they miss junk food which is very very delicious... if they tested I think they would stop... we like to eat junk food always because it is very very delicious.
People here in Wales, they behave strangely... they have strange pierce nose, ears, tongues and belly button!
High heeled shoes... so...they... I don't understand how they behave because in Uganda it is very difficult to see somebody piercing nose and belly button and somebody speaking with piercing or her tongue.
In Uganda there is no need for using electric and gas heaters. Whether it is night or day, it is warm so there is no need to use gas and electric heaters which is very costly.
Here in Wales, people fear... to enjoy sun, death because they fear to get cancer.
Before coming in Wales I thought people here... all people speaking Welsh but to my amazement people here they speak two languages... Welsh and English but in Uganda we speak 42 languages.
Although Wales is a strange land with strange behaviour and weather, I'd like to stay in Wales... lovely Wales."
