An unexpected find in the middle of Uganda

Speke Resort is everything younxhould expect in a world class resort . This was a reallynpleasantnarrival after running the 40km gauntlet of peak traffic at 8:00pm on a Saturday evening. Businesses run and the streets are busy from 8:00am to midnight every day - or so said our enterprising driver.

The Routes Africa Summit would prove to be challenging though and with the beckoning shores Lake Victoria clearly visible from my breakfast table, I would come no closer exploring the much-beckoning vaunted beauty of Uganda and it's famous gorilla and chimpanzees.

Four days later, I departed before dawn for the famous Entebbe Airport and my trip back to South Africa. My most memorable anecdote: that Idi Amin had decimated the rhinompopulation to extinction in replenishing his diminishing coffers.

... Not sure Rebecca C thought through her clothes today as she turned up to paint in a maxi dress, which she promptly tucked in her knickers so she could get to work. We were allocated to different rooms to paint. So this week, we are painting the first house, which is were the boys sleep and house mother Susan. The young boys want green, the older boys changed their mind 3 times, and settled for cream, with an orange feature wall! Aunt Susan wanted pink, and ...

... low carbohydrate diet used to control refractory epilepsy in childn) would be essentially impossible here, where food staples are matoke, potatoes and rice. EEGs and CTs are obtained, and specific epilepsy syndromes are diagnosed, but I am not sure how drastically this changes the management of the patient. And the EEG printouts that the doctor receives here looks like a very short strip. The CT scanner at the hospital is often broken. For outside imaging, the costs for ...

Day 3: Eldoret - Kampala (Uganda)

... trying not to fall asleep on the truck today. I swear I probably slept at least 80% of the drive. Uganda is so much greener than Kenya but it's also much more humid. Today I really struggled with the heat. Once we had payed up from lunch we hit the road again, this time stopping along the way to find an ATM. The two ATMs we found, didn't work for everyone so we ended up just getting back in the truck. It was good to get off ...

Apologies for the long delay between blogs! We're coming to the end of our time in Uganda, 3 months has absolutely flown by. November and early December have presented us with several adventures.

We had a fab week visiting the north coast (Kendwa), the east (Jambiani) and Stone Town. There was much sunbathing to be had, (with a ...
