After my arrival in East Africa in August, 1968, my
first stop was Kampala, Uganda.
Father Mike Pierce picked me up at Entebbe Airport in his Volkswagen Beetle and
a couple of days later a group of us from the Gaba Pastoral Institute went out
to a Chinese Restaurant in downtown Kampala. Sister Gertrude Maley whispered to
me: "If we let Mike do all the ordering, you will have a real experience." Well,
Mike was really in his element: "commandeering" the table as it were, joking
with the waiters, explaining all the varieties of Chinese dishes, spinning
around the revolving serving table and making sure everyone had a good time. Now
I can’t go to a Chinese restaurant without thinking of Mike Pierce.
