Kampala 3000m above sea level

UGANDA | Wednesday, 16 November 2011 | Views [710] | Comments [1]

I'm wearing a cardigan today! i thought places near the equator would be boiling hot all year round. But not here in Kampala. I found out today the reason why it is not so hot is because it is 3000m above sea level. Making the temperature a very gorgeous 16 to 26 degrees allyear round. Could I love this place more? A wise old constantly travelling vicar called Don from SOMA advised me to guard my heart but I think it might be too late! I've fallen hook, line and sinker for this place. Hurry up plane to Maridi before there is no dragging me away. i leave at 6.15 tomorrow in a taxi to Kajinsii Airfield. We fly up to Arua, Nth Uganda to ck out and then on to Maridi stopping at a few runways in between. There are a few quibbles over flying times and whether we have to stop at Juba, capital Sth Sudan but this is bound to arise with a brand new country. Also there is fighting south of the border over land and oil disputes. So security is strong.

I have to finish up quick i don't know if it's this website or to do with the power cuts that keep happening but if you don't save every 10 mins your writings disappear. There are protests here in Kampali overe the electricity situation that have got quite severe but as can happen in the UK if it's in a different part of the city it doesn't affect you
