Long drive and clubbing

Today I am a bit tired after yesterday, I got up early had breakfast, broke camp etc. We had a pretty long drive today but we just talked about the gorillas yesterday and admired the views out of the window we are all in high spirits still.
We got to the university campus that we had stopped at for lunch a few days earlier. We all upgraded and got a room for 10 000 shillings which is about $5. I put my stuff in my room had a shower etc.
Then went to the bar got a drink and went to help with tea . We all sat around and joked and chatted then I got a did you know as well as Sue f for calling the truck a bus again. Did you knows are given out if you do or say something silly so you have to get a piece of information and tell the group, Doc helped me by showing me a newspaper clipping about Zinedane Zidan and Mauritus that they were going to meet at this place in Africa an island that is a famous prison .
Anyways we had tea done the washing up then a few people were on about going for a drink in a local bar so Eric, Sue f, Doc, Pete and myself went into town to a place that somebody recommended to Doc. So we got in a taxi and when we arrived it was busy outside it ended up being a nightclub. As you went through the door there were sighs saying strictly no firearms this made me feel better. We got in after Eric having trouble with his camera, as they would not let him have it in the club. So we walked in and it was an UV club with a lot of mirrors around the walls and a couple hundred African's who were all looking at us being the only three white people. No body spoke to us they smiled and that was about it.
It was funny to see them dancing especially the people dancing on their own in front of mirrors.
So here came the funny part we had to get bike taxis. Sue didn’t want to go on her own on the back of a bike in the middle of a town in Uganda with a stranger. So I managed to convince the bloke to let both of us on the back of this bike. It was dodgy there were no helmets and as Sue had the seat I was stuck on the back with no where to put my legs so I had to stick them out of the sides and sit on a bit of metal on the back. I had my arms to Sue sides and was lightly holding on to the driver’s jacket. It was so funny me and Sue were peeing ourselves laughing saying how dodgy it was and the worse part was there were hell of a lot of bumps so every time I went over one I would let out a sigh as it was killing my ass groin and balls, the time we got back I was walking like John Wayne but it was a laugh. It's moments like these that stay with you
