This place rocks.  Uganda would have to come top the list for countries that kick ass.  I have always wanted to go to the Congo and Uganda is almost there – just kind of down the road a bit, off to the east slightly and nowhere near as dodgy. The moment we crossed the border from Kenya I thought to myself ‘I have finally found my country.’ Lush lush jungle and bright red roads, the friendliest people in Africa and easy travel makes Uganda a wicked place to hang around. I ended up spending 6 weeks there and the tears were flowing when I left.
