I am a British Canadian Mother, Wife, Teacher and storyteller. I am living in Bahrain ( and more recently Uganda and before that Trinidad where 3limes was born) after years of moving around. Most recently I lived and loved in Montreal and believed I had made my life’s home until my husband came home one day and told me we were moving to Trinidad.

In Trinidad,  a Lime is a gathering of friends, brought together to laugh, enjoy and share some love. This blog is a Lime of sorts, bringing photography, stories and observations about life, Uganda,Trinidad and the whole crazy kit and kaboodle into one place. Welcome to 3limes.

If you wish to see more of my photography, feel free to click on Moosefur on the blogroll or Flickr and it will direct you to my photoblog.

    Hi ,I’m married to a beautiful Trinidad lady named Lily. This is good for me to read because I’m not at all like her culture. Sorry to see your leaving though.

    Bravo Sam! Every time I read your blog, I’m left wanting to read more. Keep it coming! And the photos, too. Fantastic. When’s the book coming out?!!! I’m serious:)

    I really like your blog – I’ve been following it for ages, not least because we have a friend who has moved to Kampala, and your blog really gives a feel of life there,. I’ve sent him the details, too. We’re coming to Kampala in August – by which time I guess you’ll be elsewhere! Oh well … May I ask where you stayed in Murchison Falls National Park when you went there? We’ll be going with our friends (total 4 adults + 1 teenager), and it looks amazing!
