  • I think you had an amazing time! Really enjoyed the photos and I'm in love with the jewelry you got!

    You don't see the irony of wearing a bracelet to remember the harsh conditions of life in Uganda and much of Africa, nestled between a very expensive Cartier bracelet and watch? I'm interested to see if this trip has a lasting impact on you.

    ok, sei bellissima.
    mi chiedo solo: come coniughi l'esperienza di un viaggio del genere, in mezzo a gente che ha poco o niente, con le cifre che spendi per i bei vestiti che indossi?

  • My church sells jewelry and other items from Uganda and it's such a great cause. The pictures and what you're doing are wonderful =)

  • I was looking for the Werelse for MANGO item, and I was like: is it the glasses? Is it the shirt? And then I realized: ha-ha, very funny, Chiara. 🙂

  • Tutte foto splendide e bellissimi i ricordini che hai portato in Italia! A Matilda questo tocco africano dona moltissimo! 🙂

    Ciao Chiara bellissimo post come del resto tutti quelli che hai pubblicato fino ad ora su questa esperienza indimenticabile. Posso farti una domanda? Mi ha incuriosito molto la forma del ciondolo dorato che c'è su un bracciale che hai preso in Uganda…ha un significato particolare?

    What beautiful pictures, and is very good idea bring some things to the poorest people in the world. But is very sad that you've avoided touching the black people, be careful, one might think that you are a racist.

  • "In addition to this, there will also be another COMPETITION reserved for The Blonde Salad readers, whose prize will be a trip to Uganda, to take active part of this project.."

    So what ever happened with this competition? Did a reader join you on this trip?

    Foto bellissime e esperienza bellissima! Ma di che marca sono quegli occhiali coloratissimi della settima foto?
