Hellish day. Up several hours before dawn to catch the five AM bus. Ended up spending over twelve hours on the bus. Perhaps the most frustrating part was sitting with the engine running for two hours in Rukugiri - every five minutes the driver would get in and rev the engine and honk the horn as if we were just about to depart. This was repeated for an hour in Mbara as well - though only for an hour.
Coming in to the station (just outside the market) in Kampala I saw some street justice in action - three men beating a bloody man with sticks. The man eventually go away and the three vigilantes were congratulated by many locals. My guess is he was caught stealing something - I'm a little disturbed by how little it disturbed me - maybe I've been in Africa to long...
The guest house I stayed at before was full. I decided that after the trials and lack of comfort of the last three days I deserve a treat - so I picked up the bag I left and headed for a relatively nice hotel - it even has hot water! I considered the Sheraton but I just couldn't justify it. As it is this is costing me nearly ten times what the guest house did (more a comment on the cheap price of the guest house than the expense of this place).
I went up to the Sheraton to check email (trying to coordinate with my friend Dawn about arriving in Ethiopia on Friday). On the way back I ran into the some of the people I was hanging out with on Sunday night (British Airways cabin crew) - ended up being another late night.
