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.

Today, we enjoyed worshiping with the family and community of Divine Love Church. The service was very lively, the message strong in Scripture. As is custom here, Jim and I were presented as guests and asked to speak to the congregation about our calling. They have two services on Sunday: an English service followed by a local language service (with interpretation into English). We were most impressed ...
... you have no idea. There is a good amount of beggars and sad situations. There are babies placed right in the middle of it all too young to walk but sit there with their hands open in a begging position. That was very hard for me to take. I was so upset I almost got hit by a bodaboda until Vanessa yelled at me to stop. My mind was not on traffic and Judy was in fast mode. I could not help myself and cried. ...
... The next morning we fueled up for our chimpanzee trek. We were warned that this could be almost as grueling as the gorilla trek could be, with potentially hours on foot. A quick brief from the guides then we were on our way to the forest. For the first time we were also accompanied by armed guards. One per group. This was protection against bush elephants and buffalo. Apparently they can get quite upset if stumbled upon. Not 15 minutes in we ...
