It's my last few days at Wakiso and I am feeling sad about that. I am now missing my family and am ready to come home, but there is so much to do here and I finally feel like part of the team. Went into work today and was greeted my "Lovett my friend where have you been? We need you to help with this lady". They don't really appreciate that I am shared with UPMA and want me to be there 24/7. However, it's nice to feel wanted and I was ...
... There was even a small special care unity with twins in a wooden box style incubator which Pat thought was for teaching and the twins were dolls! our patient driver was still waiting fork us after this impromptu tour and wanted to drive us to lake Victoria for a boat trip. This took us a good hour in the heat and dusty roads but eventually we arrived to a waiting spread boat and lovely lunch at a local music festival venue. A beautiful end to an eventful and educational ...
... without any silverware? We levelled it to 2 all
and the game went to extra time. There was a lot of frustrated hand
gestures towards the TV before Ramsey smashed in the 3rd
winning the FA Cup. This little bar went crazy, we were all jumping
around going absolutely crazy. The pictures will tell the whole story
including an annoying prostitute who wanted to get in on every photo,
lol. Shaun was over the moon and you could not wipe ...
... Afterwards, everyone was feeling pretty hungry so we went into the cafe next door. In true Ugandan style, we were all served about 20 minutes apart from each other. I think they prepare 1 meal at a time here. There was also a power cut which probably slowed things down further! However it wasn't so bad as the entire time we were in there, there was a thunder storm going on outside. We couldn't believe how lucky we were to just about get the photographs done before ...
... centers. Also, before setting off, they had us paddle to the middle of the river and practice getting out from under the raft if it flipped. That helped everyone on our raft, several of whom had never rafted before, gain some confidence. After that, we were off. The very first rapid featured a churning 4-meter waterfall that we dropped right down face-first after some skillful maneuvering by our awesome expert raft guide, Josh.

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.
