    Monday and Tuesday at Bbira

    November 11, 2019 in Uganda ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    This week I'm at the medical centre and the other village, Bbira. I spoke to the doctor and he said that I'd be doing the same kind of thing, so I was sat in the pharmacy for the day. The pharmacy here is in the middle of both schools so children point and laugh and then shout Mzungu whenever they see me through the window! It's much smaller and more organised here also, and the team are very nice and have helped me give the right medicines. They've also been very interested about the UK and especially medical school there, to which I reply "it's really hard to get in to!"

    Monday, we decided to do a workout which I'm still hurting from and it was also Judith's birthday and her husband had planned for all of us and the staff at the guest house to surprise her which was really nice. She definitely didn't expect it and she loved it. We had some cake and danced a bit. She gave a speech, calling us ‘the best guests ever’ which I can't deny, we're pretty great!

    On Tuesday the weather wasn't very good, I've never seen so much rain fall in 5 minutes! It flooded the ground outside in minutes. This means no one comes to the clinic unless it's really urgent, so most of the time, while it was raining, was spent chatting about the UK, playing tetris and reading. Then back to the guest house, now there's only me and Felisha again as Aya has gone to Gulu.

    Another good couple of days.

    Kampala

    July 6, 2017 in Uganda ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    We drove from Jinga to Kampala, starting on mud roads before we reached the main road. Enjoyed passing the villages before we went around the capital of Uganda, stopping at a massive local market which we loved. There were lots of lovely looking veg, not so nice looking offal, clothes... Stayed at a campsite just outside the city near the lake and had a relaxing couple of hours by the pool, after trying to clean off some of the mud our tent got covered in.Read more

    Good to see you putting in some elbow grease James! I have a friend from Uganda & she's planning to get married there next year, so we might manage a visit - but only if they set a date in school hols....

    I know it is very interesting to see other ways of life but I must admit I prefer our shops (must be old age!!!). Take care, love xxxx

    Some of the huts look as if they'd be blown over with any wind blowing ! Interesting scenery xxx
