Clarks with a difference!
We went into Kampala to East Africa’s biggest market to get the girls’ school shoes and it was quite an experience. We disappeared into a rabbit warren of covered stalls with row after row of everything you could imagine. In the shoe section, we were collared by a bunch of very eager chaps who had a selection that ranged from second –hand Clarks with the original owners’ names still inscribed (although the shoes had been very well polished!) to the latest fashion, completely impractical high heels in shiny patent leather. Guess which the girls went for?! Schools starts 26th August and they can't wait (neither can Alan!)
