Inside a tobacco drying barn in Arua District. Tobacco is big business in Uganda, and the process of drying and curing the leaves needs a building like this one. The leaves are hung from the rafters, and then the temperature must be controlled exactly for around 10 days, during which time the chemical makeup of the various compounds within begins to change, which in turn makes for tastier smoke. Throughout the curing process the farmer will sleep beside his barn, paying constant attention. Photo by Will Boase for USAID/NUTI.
