Another full day – this time as tourists. We started with a visit to the amazing new Kabojja International School, still under construction but scheduled to open in September. The school is of the highest “international” standard and has beautiful finishings: all mahogany woodwork, lovely Ugandan marble in the stairwells and a conference facility with wiring for instantaneous translation into 20 languages. Was nice to learn that several of the school’s facilities will be accessible by the public.
Then on to the beautiful Speke Resort for a walk on the shore of Lake Victoria. As Erika said this morning – a day with the 1%ers. Lunch at CJ’s where we met Dennis from the safari company, then some shopping at Banana Boat (great stuff) and an afternoon visit at Kampala Museum, including a photo exhibit of the Idi Amin years highlighting the contrast between his lavish life and that of ordinary Ugandans.
Apollo did another yeoman job of getting us wherever we needed to be – topping the day off at Cassia Resort for drinks before dinner overlooking a gorgeous view of the city and Lake Victoria.
Arrived home tired, shopped out and happy.
