Grasshopper Season

There is only snack to be seen eating in Kampala at the moment...fried grasshoppers. All around the city ladies have set up stalls where you can buy bags of the insects either alive, dead + wingless, or fried and ready to eat. One benefit of increased electrification is that street lamps now provide a magnet for grasshoppers at night, making the job of catching them much easier. I have to admit that I haven't yet plucked up the courage to try one but if/when I do, I'll let you know...
