I know I said I was done blogging about Uganda, but I hope you’ll forgive me for wanting to make a couple posts of somewhat touristy travel photos. I really wanted to show a little more about what it’s like there, other than the great work that Watoto does. It’s a beautiful country, and I wouldn’t hesitate to go back.
We were fortunate to go on a mini-safari while I was there, and it was amazing. We started very early in the day (the shot of the guard hut was taken at 6:30 am and we had left Gulu at 3:30 in the morning) and it really paid off. We saw lions, warthogs, giraffes, hyenas, jackals, hippos, and lots of antelope-type guys adorned with varying lengths of pointy bits. There were elephants but they were having a little elephant party quite a ways in the distance and didn’t seem too keen on interrupting the good fun to pose for our photos. Another reason to go back I suppose!
