I had read that the nights are chilly, so I packed a lightweight long-sleeved t-shirt and pair of pants that could double for day clothes. I was so hot!
I ended up sleeping without clothes, which was sticky and uncomfortable, especially because we stayed in a lot of places without air conditioning and the windows were closed at night to keep out the mosquitoes.
From my online research, I decided to bring a swimsuit that was the style of a t-shirt with skirted bike shorts.
My shirts were athletic material that was more like swimwear than cotton and were chilly to put on in the morning.
For my clothes, I opted to wear ¾-sleeve t-shirts because I wanted some sun and mosquito protection, but plenty of Ugandan women wore short sleeves and even tank tops (I didn’t see any bra straps).
I didn’t see any Ugandan women in shorts, although they did wear knee-length skirts/dresses. I also saw women wearing black leggings with tunics. The younger women also wore jeans and trousers.
