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.

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 ...
... 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.
