Lucy Lusumba, housewife: 'I was born in the village here and have never travelled far from the village. Just 10 kilometres from here to sell my vegetables at the local market. But just because I never go to the city doesn't mean I don't want to look good. I get my hair done each week. Sometimes short, sometimes rather longer, or like now as a 'satellite'. I don't do it just to look nice but also because my hairdo is the only event in my life.'.
