Slices of Life: Becoming a citizen
I was born in the United States. I have to admit it’s something I’ve sort of taken for granted. Knowing 11 million people would like to stand in my shoes is humbling. As is the process they are willing to go through to claim U.S. citizenship.

Through Foreign Eyes: Driving lessons are driving me crazy
“Keep right, Sharon, keep right! Make sure the wheel is in the middle of the road, that is how you can tell you’re on the right side of the roads,” Tim told me. Sometimes, I even go off the road but I will blame it on the good roads. In Uganda, few roads are paved and most...

Slices of Life: Events worth celebrating
A wedding is not just one Event. It is many. It is a celebration of celebrations. A pandemonium of parties. In a good way. Mostly.

Through Foreign Eyes: For hockey and ice skating, I will brave the cold
But for hockey I will kiss and makeup with the cold. I will do anything to learn how to skate. This Saturday I went to a hockey game. The first time I heard about this sport was through my colleague, Jamie Lund. She loves hockey. What is amazing is they play on ice. How cool is...

Through Foreign Eyes:Guess what? Pets are animals, not people
In Uganda, everything's different. You will not at any one point find someone walking a dog, or paying that much attention to it. The only animal that I have seen people try to give attention to are cats. These, as long as they know you love them, will go anywhere in the house, but...

Through Foreign Eyes: Home is home, but housing is really different
