Matooke being peeled. It's very sappy so you have to oil up with Mukwano (translated - "friendship") cooking oil first
And this is peeled matooke
Luganda Language Lesson
Ok, since we've thrown a few Luganda words in our posts recently, here's a very quick language lesson.
a = "ah"
e = "ay" ... or "eh" I guess
i = "ee"
o = "oh"
u = "oo!"
And just to keep you on the right track with the language - Luganda, the main local language where we are, has a funny little rule that will (ok, it might not) blow your mind. Double vowels = stress that syllable. So, where you might be tempted to call it "Ma-too-kee" like it would be pronounced in ye olde english, it's "Mah-TOH-kay." Now you too can get by in Uganda about as proficiently as I can!
