PDC Finale, Lake Mburo and Leslie’s Paradise (Kigungu Village)

On the last night at Sabina we had a big big party and as a part of it we all had to have a little performance. My part in the night was playing an instrument that Will put together with a thong’ and also playing the drums with Charles on the adungu. It was a great night and it was a good end to such a good corse with heaps of new friends.

The last couple of days with some of the people from the PDC. We made it to a little National Park at Lake Mburo. Kate, Estelle, Daimen and I were lucky (or unlucky) enough NOT to get banda’s for the night and so we ended up camping with the hippos right beside us. I kept of thinking of Neva and how she would not approve of the sleeping arrangements given her escape from a charging hippo. It was actually a very relaxing couple of days and we went for a walking safari which meant we got up close to the animals with nothing between us and them except a guide and an AK47! Also we spent some time reading and laying in the sun.

We made our way back to Kampala in a very interesting fashion. Now that I look back on it it was quite a fun trip, but along with a fight to get onto the bus, ending up on a 3 hour matatu, drinking and seat belt conversations along the way, Daimen, Estelle, Kate and I will not forget it at all.

After the Lake we caught up with Leslie from the Permaculture course. She offered us a place to stay and we found her house within a small paradise backing onto Lake Victoria. We spent Tuesday 26th January 2010 on Lake Victoria, in a traditional boat watching the sunset with a beer in hand. Ah what a tough Tuesday.
