Tony has very recently crossed into Ethiopia at the border with Kenya. It was a difficult and somewhat dangerous crossing, what with a tribal conflict occurring at the Kenyan side and Tony and other travellers having to use illegal transport and mountain tracks to enter Ethiopia. This is Tony’s 88th country visited.
So, it’s been a while since my last update, what have I been doing? From Kampala, Uganda’s small capital I stayed with David who showed me the sights, the market, the Anglican cathedral and even Gadaffi’s own mosque! I climbed into a minaret! From there we headed into rural Masaka and visited an orphanage containing 600 children! Can you imagine it! These are mostly street kids some have HIV and many have no family at all.
Tony is now in Jinja, Uganda, the activity capital of East Africa. Before Jinja he was in Kampala, Uganda’s capital. He visited an orphanage and bought beans and posho to make porridge, for 600 kids! Tony has just bungee jumped into the River Nile and got his head wet! 44 metres, 145 feet bungee over the worlds longest river. The day before, Tony and Meddy, a lovely young guy from Jinja visited the source of the Nile,
Tony is now in Uganda, country 86. After entering into Kisoro from Rwanda, he’s visited the Rwensori Mountains where he camped for 2 nights and did a day hike. Then he visited Queen Elizabeth National Park for a boat ride with hippos, crocodiles and buffalo for company! Tony has just arrived in Fort Portal and is going to Lake Nkuruba Nature Reserve on Enfusi Community Campsite.
