I’ve ventured so far as to find the khane, a gorgeous and imposing building leftover from when more Ismailis lived here pre-1970s. Now, there are only about 30 Ismailis which makes for an intimate affair. Though beautiful, the khane had clearly fallen on hard times and though the inside is clean it could be spruced up with a fresh coat of paint. The people here, like most of Uganda, are brilliant and lovely and they are quick to welcome me into the family. I love that part of belonging to an international community – you always feel like you’re at home.
