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.

So today we will visit the baby orphanage! We are pleased with the glorious sunshine since the babies will be outside playing in the sun. We can't get there too early since they all have to be awake and dressed, so we set off at 10.30am, which meant we could all enjoy a breakfast together at our hostel. Paul and Liz even got up early for a 6k run! There was a debate who won (not that it was a race), but we heard Liz was able to talk more. And naturally we ...
... a tourist trap, it is better to wait to Kampala for better value! As we started to enter Kampala, the traffic was pretty horrific. The roads are jam packed with buses, cars and Boda Bodas and people. There are no lanes, no rules, and the Bodas just pull in and out. Knocking into a Boda means nothing to them, they just carry on. The are people walking in the traffic selling anything from shoes, chewing gum to Chelsea FC flags! Also homeless people ...
... day, too beautiful to catch on camera. The children are all speaking English and one of the mamas can cook for me if I want. Around 6 or 9 children live in small houses with a mama girls of all ages and the same with the boys, not mixed togetherness. I have 5 huge pineapples in my kitchen and plenty in the fridge to eat, family of the director have arrived and I am invited again, very nice indeed. Electricity is as bad as Internet in spite of the sun panels, I boiled ...
... the possible risk factors for suicide. Another life lost. The 535th autopsy this year. There are too many deaths at Mulago for routine medical autopsies, and insufficient cassettes for tissue samples to send for histopathology evaluation. Did we learn anything from the autopsy for 535 that we didn't already know? I’m not sure.
Observing autopsies is proving to be a very different experience than the cadaver dissections ...
... doesn't really matter. Anyway the good news is that we're ready to go and feeling slightly more relaxed...it was by far the most stressful part of the trip!! We'll be thinking of Juliet, Rosie, Joe and Pauline as they attend the opening of the school ...
