We got up early and got a taxi to the Post Office where we got on the bus for Kisoro. What would an African adventure be without spotting a rat walking along a ledge of the Post Office building.

    Stayed here for a couple of weeks in december 2010, went to Rwanda for two weeks, missed Uganda so I came back. Still here in mid February 2011. Amazing staff, the best town in Uganda and even the friendliest dog.

    Don't even consider anywhere else in Kisoro
