On the road back to Serena Hotel.
The ride back to the hotel for a few hours rest was a bit unnerving. After a week in Kampala, I hadn't really been out and about in the daylight. Near the Equator, the daylight stretches to seven o'clock but I still haven't seen Kampala in the daylight, other than the morning commutes. To see Kampala in the daylight was surprising indeed.
Details of city life popped out at me - even though the Sheraton venue is about a kilometer from my hotel. Seeing the details of the city not shrouded in nighttime creates a yearning to see the rest of the city. To walk the streets, meet more of the people and maybe even take a spin on the back of a Boda Boda.
Ladies ride sidesaddle on the Boda Bodas.
