Happy Easter!

It’s been a rather rainy one (British weather!), but a good one all in all. I for one started the day with a lovely time at church, celebrating the real reason for the day; the resurrection. Mum felt she couldn’t do without our traditional Ugandan staple, Matooke, so off we went after church; to go find some matooke for the Easter meal. Turns out finding Matooke in London is no mean feat.

In the run up to Easter, there’s been a big egg hunt across Central London. It’s a Fabergé-themed egg hunt to raise money for some excellent causes. 200 huge, uniquely crafted eggs were laid (pun un-intended) out in several places across the city, and every one invited to join in. In my travels around the city, I managed to find four of these huge eggs. Big number, right? 4 out of 200 is quite something, I think.

It’s a pity these eggs aren’t stuffed with chocolate, as easter eggs. Being the chocolate fiend I am, that would have made a doubly perfect easter.
