Royal Ascot Goat Races

And they're off!

Last weekend we went to the Royal Ascot Goat Races – an absurdly formal and silly social event at one of the resorts on Lake Victoria.  Men and women of all colors showed up in evening wear and fabulous hats in an effort to win prizes for the individuals and couples who were the best dressed.  The races were interspersed with traditional Ugandan dancing and Vegas-esque Russian ladies belly dancing with giant boas and feather hats.  Over all a fabulous time.Buganda traditional dance between races.

Tiptoeing the line between glamour and comfort
