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.

She even managed to find an eye glass shop to repair my broken glasses in all that chaos today!
... on. The next country on the road is Rwanda. It has been on my mind for years and now this dream is coming true. From what I heard it might be even more expensive than Uganda due to the stage of development...anyways, skipping Rwanda is not an option! After all what happened 20 years ago in this shaken country they are now one of the most developed and progressive countries in all of Africa with access to health care for everyone, almost 100% of the ...
... out the bags of balls and toys and it was Christmas morning for the children. Fire trucks, balls, books, skipping ropes, ponies, and Little Peoples took over the dirt mounds in no time. Straw mats were brought out and small cluster of children surrounded different books under the shade of the banana trees. We participated in a circle time of pathetic singing to end off the morning for the kids. Ruth was able to share with us some of the trials of the ...
... sleep in. I changed and got ready to head to the office. I felt a bit queasy and vomited the entire contents of my breakfast back up. Didn't look like I was going to work today and Jac was stuck at home playing attendant. Another day of smashing the porcelain and trying to keep up my fluids was on the cards. I started feeling a bit better in the evening and hoped that was the last of the Holy Shittness once again this was to be proven ...
