The island country of Bahrain, with its 161km of coastline, sits off the western shores of the Arabian Gulf. Its warm coastal waters are ideal for the variety of thalassotherapy treatments offered at the Sofitel Bahrain Zallaq Thalassa Sea & Spa resort. Though small, Bahrain is bursting with diverse attractions: World Heritage archaeological sites, horse racing and the Formula One Bahrain Grand Prix. The capital city, Manama, and its international airport are just 30 minutes away.

I’ve been super inspired by the language moodboards I’ve seen around, and I thought I’d give it a shot with the language I learned during my two years as a Peace Corps volunteer in central Uganda - Luganda. Besides I haven’t seen too many African languages represented!

For those who aren’t familiar, from Wikipedia, The Ganda language, Luganda is one of the major languages in Uganda, spoken by five million Baganda and other people principally in Southern Uganda, including the capital Kampala. It belongs to the Bantu branch of the Niger–Congo language family. Typologically, it is a highly agglutinating language with subject–verb–object word order and nominative–accusative morphosyntactic alignment. With about four million first-language-speakers in the Buganda region and a million others who are fluent, it is the most widely spoken Ugandan language. As second language it follows English and precedes Swahili. The language is used in some primary schools in Buganda as pupils begin to learn English, the primary official language of Uganda. Until the 1960s, Luganda was also the official language of instruction in primary schools in Eastern Uganda.
