Today it was another early start so I was up early, broke camp  had breakfast then back on the truck . Today was another really long day driving we drove to Kampala the capital of Uganda. The campsite is ok very basic cold showers but thats all I expect.


 Its know 10.45pm I have been at the bar with some of the group but most went bed early but I stayed up with Sam and Cathy and had a few drinks and a chat it is nice to be able to just sit down and chat with the ladies, I was a bit worried I would find this one of the hardest parts of the trip ( You may have guessed by now I was a tad Shy back home. Ahh bless hehe)


We have another long day tomorrow to take us closer to Rwanda and the gorillas.

It was pretty cold that day
It's ok being in the truck for a long time because you have the views out of the windows and you can talk on the bus. Some sleep and doze of, some read and some listen to their I pods. Today we drove through several towns and villages and you get to see what life here is really like and how they go about thee daily lives. You can’t help feel sorry for them when you see kids around 8ish working in the fields doing Manuel jobs. But they are so friendly especially the kids who wave and say jambo meaning "hello" and "muzungu" meaning white person.


 They are so happy when you wave back to them they jump up and down giggling and laughing and they will run after the bus. There are some who beg but we got told do not give them anything as they skip school as they can make money of tourists feeling sorry for them.


 I am loving travelling and meeting people it’s helping my confidence a lot. I am still feeling dizzy like I am drunk I think it is a mixture of motion sickness as we are travelling hell of a lot and also the food and water, climate etc.
