The BEAUTY of Teso…(when the Iteso)

Part 4 on the series about the Iteso. All the information here was either got from Google or personal inquiries with people well vast with the culture. The information is ofcourse disputable. Feel free to make additions or subtractions after you read.
Enjoy the read!

First of all(Not Iteso related)… Those who are constant
readers of my blog or who know me personally know that I love taking pictures. However over the past few weeks, I have developed this strong convinction to do photography. Not professionally. Just as a hobby. Instead of always being the one Infront of the camera, I want to experience what being behind it feels like. I hope to start on this before the end of this year. So… My friends, relatives and well-wishers, the birthday is very soon on 28th April and the birthday gift idea is a camera.(don’t say you dint know)….

Now to the Iteso… This is a pictures post. I searched for a few pictures of Teso and I came up with these.(looking forward to the day when I will photograph them on my own!). Enjoy a very tiny bit of Teso in pictures.

And then…. The Nyero Rock paintings. In my opinion, they are the most beautiful things that happened to Teso. Found right in the district I come from, Kumi, these paintings are a tourist attraction for both locals and international people. They are so cute… I just had to screenshoot them from Google as they are and put up two pictures of them. I will soon have to take pictures of them on my own.

And we do fishing too. One of the favourite delicacies in Teso is Agaria (fish). And we are privileged to be near some part of Lake kyoga.. so we do fish too!
