      Eldoret to Jinja

      November 29, 2019 in Uganda ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

       Long drive from Eldorat to Jinja – didn’t go off to sleep for hours, so felt really rough when I got up at 6am. The weather is getting much warmer than earlier in the week with a very hot equatorial sun. We travelled to the Ugandan border and through the town of Bo? Where here the young chap I met in the supermarket was from and told me that his tribe came up the Nile and spread into modern day Kenya and Uganda and that they were fishermen on lake Victoria and that Barak Obama’s father was from their tribal community. We crossed through immigration at the border without too much hassle. The countryside in Uganda was beautiful, lush green and quite tropical with interesting rock outcrops by the road in one place. The Ugandan children and some adults waved at us as we drove by and we waved back. There seemed to be people with street businesses and workers in the farms by the roads all along the route. We arrived in Jinja town which is a bustling, energetic African town. The campsite had a beautiful view over the river Nile and a pitched my tent looking out to the river. I walked down to the river to watch the sunset. Their were birds returning to roost including a long necked river bird. The view was beautiful with a new crescent moon with Venus and Jupiter sparkling below and Saturn shining above. There are many activities to do on the Nile which I will choose tomorrow.Read more
