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.

In the short time we've been together we've laughed a lot (once to the point where I thought Julia ...
... so apologies for the lack of communication. TIA (This is Africa)! So Hayley got back to see the group had ordered breakfast, and had them delivered outside their rooms and so they were pleased with their breakfast on the terrace, very posh! So off we went straight to the orphanage. As ever, we were greeted by the children one by one. Mike, Jill and Beth went to get paint while the group cleared the rooms, walls and got the dust sheets down ready to start ...
... some are associated with congenital heart defects, some with genitourinary abnormalities, and some with increased risk of certain types of cancers. Having an actual diagnosis could dictate screening protocols and long-term care of the patient based on their specific risk factors.
I saw a variety of patients at pediatric neurology clinic on the two Thursdays that I joined Dr. Idro for his weekly clinic. Mothers carry their 8-12 year old children with cerebral palsy ...
... on a boda boda before coming back to pick us up. We went down into town to do some shopping and change some money before coming back to the hotel for dinner. It was a humbling and emotional day and made us all realise, I think, the real impact of the medical teams on the local communities. Today the team is splitting in 2 - most of the medics are going to Matugga to run a clinic for sponsored children while the rest of us are going to Bombo to paint classrooms. ...
