I returned to Kampala mid last week and I have been slowly recuperating. The weekend in Kigali was fun-filled…..less sleep and much partying! What more could I ask for?

It is holiday time in Rwanda and all the Rwandans living in the diaspora returned home with so much hype. All night spots are full from Monday to Monday and these young men and women are more than ready to drink whatever liquid that has got a good amount of alcohol in it.

After 4 sleepless nights, I was more than happy to return to Kampala.  The downside of every party night is that it ends with you returning to your bed solo. If you do not have a car, then it is either a taxi cab or a moto-taxi.

A moto-taxi on a Kiagli night wilml sober you up pronto if you had been intoxicating yourself. Nights in Kiagli are the coldest I have ever experienced in a any city.

The Kampala – Kigali route is getting busier by the day with so many bus companies joining the route. Noteworthy is that most of these buses prefer to move by night.

The weekend in Kampala was very heavy…..thanks to the return of th holidaymakers, now there is kavuyo in every hangout!

Evening in Kla


It is confirmed!  I am leaving Kampala tonight. I have no choice. I have a journey of about 500 kms. This will take about 10 hours.

Last evening, I went downtown…something I rarely do. I was struck ny the number of shopping malls that have come up. Every where you turn, there is a mall and the shops are either Indian or Chinese owned. What is happening? Very soon, Nakasero market will have to give way to a mall.

Something else that struck is the number of eager shoppers. After this, I confirmed that the credit crunch hit only particular parts of the city.

I was in town till late due to the heavy trafiic on Jinja Road, so I went to check on friend’s mum who is receiving medication from Nakasero Medical Centre (located in Capital House). We chatted till late. When she was discharged, I walked back to Kampala Road to get my car. On my way, I was attacked by a number of ladies of the night…….oh the horror!

It is sad…..very sad….they are now taking it to the streets!

In response to Tumwi’s post ,I googled images of the Uganda police and this is one of the images among the many that came up:

Our Police

Despite, the long journey, I am travelling in comfort:

Catch you on the on the other side.  Stay safe!

Trip


This post has nothing to do with my state of mind right now.
I have a trip coming and I am dreading it already. I do not know what is happening. I am usually the kind of person who will get up at 2 am to hit the road just for the fun of it.

There are a number of options: I could feign illness but that would mean no kyeyo for the next 2 months. This is unacceptable, I got BILLS!

This morning, I came to office with my Bible hoping it wuld help but…..it aint working out!

I wish you all a fabulous weekend….maybe mine will be good!

Have you listened to Nze Wuwo by Tshilla featuring Micheal Ross? This is a very good song. It is better than all the collabos done by Micheal Ross……well, that is my opinion. It is the song I am listening to as I write this. I love Tshilla. She is very vibrant and has a very strong and good voice.

The weather has been funny for the last past days.  At one time, we are being roasted and the next we are frozen or drenched!

On Monday I had to go to rescue a colleague in Murchison Falls NP. His car had broken down at the gate enetring the park. I had planned to leave Kampala at 11h00 but at that time my car was still in the garage and nowhere close to being ready……meachanics!

At 14h00, the mechanic calls me that he thinks he is done. I get to him in 20mins and we do 20 mins test drive. After fixing this and that…..here and there, we set off for Masindi at 15h15.  We got there in 6hours and 40 mins. It was so dark but thank God, I had come with a mechanic. The guy worked on his car until 03h00. Meanwhile, we drank lots of black coffee and ate lots of pancakes.  After checking that all was okay, we left my friend at the gat waiting for sunrise. We immediately returned to Kampala.  The return journey was faster because of the low traffic. I made it in 5 hours. Kampala has a beautiful sunrise. It is breathtaking! I

We talked so much…..actually the mechanic….he is called Tadeo did most of the talking. These guys are full of stories. Interesting and intelligent ones.  I did the listening. From politics to culture to religion…

I have insomnia. I spend the night counting sheep…..okay I am thinking most of the time. If I am lucky I get 4 hours of sleep.

This week has been too slow, I am carrying the sleep debt of Monday night and I have not even managed to sleep properly. I do not know what to do.

The weekend is calling
