Kiran's Birthday Goes Wrong In An Inhospitable Venue


Kiran Bains finds out that a Ugandan National Park is the wrong place to get lost after dark.

The young peace builder working in Gulu takes off for an adventure with Lam and Sam, great friends helping her celebrate a birthday.

But unforeseen complications along the way mean that the three are stranded with the sun down in a place where elephants, hyenas, and hippopotamuses amble by semi-regularly. It's dangerous, dark, and no help is in sight.

This story was told at the September 5, 2017 live Worth Repeating. This event was held at Brick at the Blue Star Art Complex
