Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did.
So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. --- Mark Twain

Uganda, Jinja

217-th day of the journey


This size of birds were on the table in the morning.
Some street pictures of Kampala.


Marabous in town.


The streets have name plates and some of the houses have numbers, but could not find number 22.


Over time one gets used to left-hand traffic again. The DRC and Southern Sudan with their right-hand traffic were for a good change. So they drive here , in Kampala, friendly, side by side. The lanes should exist as well, because I was once stopped by the police for being on the wrong line.



Kampala-Jinja road. A guard with a gun in the car. Standing at the edge of the back hatch. The speed was about 60 - 70 km per hour.

Of course without a ticket one cannot get near the waterfall. The prices are in Uganda schillings and the current exchange rate is 1 EUR = 3840 Uganda local currency. So quite a reasonable price, a bit more than 1 EUR.

Climbing down this kind of a view opened. This Bujagali Falls is more like a rapids than a classic waterfall.

Here it would be nice to practise rafting.






A house in the suburb.


And an overnight place in Jinja. Tomorrow back to Kampala.
