On my one day off, Sunday, I still had to work, but only half the day. In the morning and early afternoon, we took a taxi to (one of) the source(s) of the Nile. This one starts at lake Victoria and is already quite impressive.
We took a small boat out on the water, visited the Speke monument and then went on to Gujabali falls, a series of rapids close to the source.
Speke is the character who ‘discovered’ the source.

There’s a good writeup on the discovery of the source at Wikipedia. Interestingly, the first time the whole length of the river was traversed was only a few years ago.

Back in Kampala, my coworkers went back to work, while I gave myself a little bit more time, visiting one of the, globally, few Baha’i houses of worship, just on the edge of town.

There’s a brand of cigarettes called ‘Sportsman’. Meanwhile, I haven’t seen anyone, except a few mzungu (farang) smoke.

And then, like in many other countries, using a cellphone while behind the wheel of a moving car is not allowed in Uganda. However, surprisingly, whenever our driver, which we had for most of the first week, would get a call while behind the wheel, he would actually stop the car before picking up the phone!
