Where I stayed
The drive into Kabale (pronounced kah-BAH-lee) is absolutely gorgeous as we wind our way through the mountains. The roads have recently been repaved, so it is a comfortable drive. We pass one of the first national park reserves in Uganda, where there stands a forest of bamboo. Coming down from the mountain to Lake Bunyonyi, we find large pastures for grazing cattle in semi-swamp areas. When we stop in Kabale, Nasser takes us to a small museum to get some education on the local Bakisu (pronounced bah-CHEE-soo) tribe.
From here, we head east / northeast through Mbarrara (pronounced EM-bah-RAHR-rah) to Masaka (mah-sah-KAH)
If you look at a map of our driving route today, it looks like we are going off course, but that’s what you have to do if you want to stay on paved roads. Nonetheless, we hit some rough areas, where construction hasn’t yet reached, and drivers are always in a hurry, making for some gut-wrenching close calls. We safely reach the home in Lunyinya by 6 pm, with a good hour to go before sunset, where the family warmly greets us. We’re home for a while.
