Hey all
entered Jinga for the first time today on a Booda Booda which is like a motorbike, everyone goes round on one, but no HELMETS!!!! its scary as, and evryone drives mad!!! the roads are really chaos!!  the most scariest ride of my life!!! i went on one with Recks, and we bartered to a price good :) it cost less than 50p each for the 8km Journey into Jinga. We are actually stayin at 'Bujagali' which is a little village where Soft power is based and our campsite is based. (The blog has main cities based in its database which is why Jinga is the name always on here, sozzle) Jinga is manic but one of the safest african cities. It is the 2nd largest city in Uganda, 2nd from Kampala the capital. We went to the interent cafe called the source, it was ok the connection here is slow by the way, and i have to write quick in case the electricity goes which it is known for!!
We are heading for a supermarket to buy some western food, i'll probably buy some biscuits i really miss biscuits!!! we are then heading in for 2 friends which is a pizza place it looks great, i'll let you know how good it is. The food to buy for diner isnt fab at camp and no one has had a reall proper meal, so i think everyone is looking forward to pizza tonight, though dont get me wrong food is real cheap  and the chipapatas are real yummy!!!
