Notes from Kampala on KLM Royal Dutch Airlines food

"So much to tell" the subject line in Gailor's second e-mail read... "but i only have these tiny windows of internet access."  Below is the rest of the e-mail in its entirety.

She seems to be writing for the blog, not her father and me, so she feels compelled only to write about the food on her Uganda trip. That might be reassuring to some mothers, but I'm sitting here wondering what she's been eating since her meal on the plane. Teriyaki turkey jerky? ...

Today is our last day in Kampala, the capital, before heading out to the smaller towns (Mbarara and Kabale), so I'm not sure how much Internet access I'll have.  Wanted to give you the plane meal as promised, but I don't have my computer to load and send the pics to you...
Started with a snack of roasted almonds and a drink.
pasta bolognese with pine nuts
a bean salsa (?) with cubes of cold chicken
pound cake with cherries
(they have a partnership with a famous British chef, David B..? who designs their meals..)
Unsatisfying without the photos, I know.

Be happy she's writing about food. In Uganda the worry is not what you're eating but what's eating you.

"Unsatisfying without the photos, I know.

But was it satisfying to eat?

(I know, that's the message in its entirety, but I still have to ask the question).

Pound cake sounds like a command. Yes mistress I will.
