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.

Attempting this travel blog thing, no idea how it works. Unfortunately I don't have the cool Jiggers that connect my camera to my phone, so the only pics I can put up are the few I took on my phone not the ones from my camera. Kenya was way better than expected, went to lake Nakuru national park and saw zebras, impala, water buck, buffalo, ...

There is 4 consulting rooms and a dental clinic. There is no dentist at the moment. They are praying that they might soon get ...
... on my new found drive for normality, so with a newly inflated birthing ball, Alison and I set off to Wakiso, leaving pat behind to finalise her lectures and course material. The rain was torrential and the lovely road outside the UPMA building became a red river of mud. Bonnie had to put the car into 4 wheel drive to leave the complex and we hung on with eyes shut while he negotiated the river. When we reached Wakiso, we were greeted by Sister Betty who ...
... Marks beard....which is a first! She also sensed they both had a dodgy stomachs too, nice. She did feel the biggest and most positive energy she has ever felt from Liam...interesting! We were all looking forward to our journey to the orphanage which seems to get longer each day. We are greeted along the route by more and more children from the village as they hear us coming, we stop for each of them and it makes us all happy to see them smile as we hand out lots of biscuits ...
... there since the 1970s, but due to several problems the construction never completed. Gaddafi came to visit, and when asked if he could help with the construction, he provided the resources needed to finish it, and it ended up being completed in 2008. It was a very impressive place - the special prayer room was enormous, and fills up on special occasions. There was also a very tall tower that we were able to climb, and from there we could basically see all ...
