The grasshopper, one of Uganda’s favorite snack.

During my walks, I always want everyone to try out these grasshoppers because I would not want anyone to miss such a taste. The facial expression they give is like “no where in this world I would eat a grasshopper!”. But I don’t give up easily in convincing people to try. I always tell them to at least close their eyes and try one grasshopper. And if that is done, they are surprised by the taste. They always ask for more. Or sometimes they are like, “they are actually not bad!” It is always good to know I did not try for nothing.
