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.

Over in the cream room, with an orange feature wall was Rebecca C with her dress tucked in her knickers, Fran and Linda. The kids got a bit happy with the paint brush in here, they painted the light switch, the door lock, frame, so much that the door was sticking when closing it! Hayley was ...
... discover that it was a van full of ice! It was the strangest thing to see, in 30 degree heat! TIA. Aside from all the fun, we have actually done a few useful thing too... Rach has struggled through UK job applications using the rather slow internet, and has been continuing to work at hospice. There've been some really happy occasions, like the patients' Christmas party, and some rather sadder ones. Often the scale of the problems that patients have can be slightly ...
... campsite where the local children wanted a dance off so I had to bring it. It was brought. Game over. Zoe: an early start today for a very long drive. We left at 6am and didn't get into camp until 6pm. We made our way through Kampala, which as it turns out has terrible terrible traffic. Crazy days. We stopped for food shopping and then the highlight of the day was stopping at the equator for some ...
