Now on my third visit (and dozens of faux pas later) I feel like I’m finally getting the hang of the culture here in Uganda. This is mainly due to having a plethora of patient Ugandans willing to answer my every query.
Fort Portal is located around 4 hours drive west from Uganda’s capital. It’s an area of natural beauty, gateway to several national parks and the starting point for many gorilla tracking expeditions. Sitting in this peaceful, laid back town, it’s hard to believe that just beyond the mountain range lies the Democratic Republic of Congo, and all its woes.
Hello to all our wonderful CALM Africa donors. It’s been 15 months since we distributed your hard earned cash around Uganda and here we are now making follow up visits.
Uganda never fails to be eventful. This is my third visit to Uganda (Leckie’s second) as we have an ongoing relationship with a charity here. We always find that so much happens that we need to journal just to process everything, and this time is proving no different.
Are you thinking about spending some of those hard earned holiday days or precious backpacking days volunteering your time. Good for you!
