Visiting the old Jamatkhana in Kaliro, Uganda

Visiting the old Jamatkhana in Kaliro, UgandaWe arrived in Kaliro far sooner than we had expected, and I immediately got chills. My dad’s family was from here, and although I had heard stories and seen a few pictures, it was hard to believe that I was actually there. Kaliro is a small town, with a fairly small central street running through it. The old Jamat Khane has now been converted into a mosque, but it was still pretty magnificent.
