We started out from Kampala, the capital of Uganda. We both thought it was funny that cows get to hold up traffic even in the city.
We were also amused by the public swimming area that Kampala had to offer.
On the nicely paved road to Gulu, we met these school children either walking from/to school at 10am in the morning. We can't quite figure out their schedules.
The road to Gulu was green and only had 10 speed bumps...an improvement from the hundreds of speed bumps we had to deal with just a year ago.
We turned east at a place called Kitgum and we left the tarmac. This is the most beautiful part of the drive. The colors in the countryside are vivid and the mountains loom around us. It was still fairly green in this place.
Upon enterning Karamoja, we begin to see the huge granite formations.
Then we get past the green fields and reach Kaabong district. Dry and sparse...but home. The road was straight for miles. We felt at peace about being here.
The red roofs in the distance welcomed us. The dogs were barking their heads off and the spiders in our house were retreating. It's nice to finally unpack our suitcase, settle in and put our feet up.
