Dec 17, 2008 - Journey to Kasese

During the morning rush hour, I took a cab from the Red Chilli Hideaway to the bus terminal of the Kalita Bus Company in Kampala and boarded the bus to Kasese, which lies some 300 kilometers away from Kampala. Vikki and I had briefly stopped in the taxi park in Kasese a few days ago after leaving Kilembe en route to Fort Portal, but here I was again, heading back for more punishment on the Ugandan bus network.

Sus' BIG TRIP

Feb 19, 2006 - Queen Elizabeth Nat'l. Park - Uganda

Queen Elizabeth Nat'l. Park After a flat tire on the worst possible stretch of road you can imagine, then losing the spare tire, then having another flat, we then had the rear break drum split! In Uganda this is quite a procedure. Finding spare parts is not easy and leaving a vehicle at the side of the road for any length of time is not advised. All went well in the end. We hitched a ride with a friend of Chris's (who happened to drive by -what are the odds?) Waiting for a few hours at a beautiful lodge overlooking Q.E. N.P. watching...
