Understandably, we’re all very tired, but the bus journey from the airport to our guesthouse gave us a sneak peek of Kampala city life and Ugandan culture which we’re excited to explore (although maybe after a few hours sleep). Tomorrow we’ll drive 5 hours to Ascension’s link parish, Naminage. Please do […]
