However, the relocation is not all dreamy as Makhumbi highlights her experience as a refugee in a foreign country and she talks about racism she encountered, and how she had to give in as a Ugandan woman. As Makumbi writes at one point: “Inside we were dying, I threw away all that Uganda had taught me socially and culturally and allowed Britain to realign me.” Manchester Happened will resonate with travellers who know intimately that the space between here and back home is more than just a distance.  she talks about racism she encountered, and how she had to give in as a Ugandan woman. As Makumbi writes at one point: “Inside we were dying, I threw away all that Uganda had taught me socially and culturally and allowed Britain to realign me.” Manchester Happened will resonate with travellers who know intimately that the space between here and back home is more than just a distance.
