Kampala City Life

August 06, 2013  •  1 Comment

It's July 24th and we are back in Kampala for our last two days in Africa.  We make our way to Nakasero market, one of many "farmer's" markets in the city (there are also grocery stores you can shop at instead).  The market is organized into sections: fruits and vegetables, spices, then meat.  Once we get through the market we come upon the matatu (taxi/bus) main lot where you can get a ride to anywhere in the the city and country (how do they get out of that mess? Slowly, haha).  We pass through another open air market that has clothing and material for sale which very much reminded me of going to the remate (Cherry Auction or fairgrounds flea market).  We headed away from the commotion to go visit John's new flat (apartment) and meet his girlfriend at their just-opened restaurant.  After a late lunch at John's restaurant we slowly headed back to Aunt Cathy's.  Slow because it was rush hour and matatus could only take us so far before gridlock would render them pointless and I was still unwilling to ride on a boda boda (motorcycle for hire) so we started to walk.  We finally got to Kololo ( the area of Kampala we were staying in) and decided to relax at Mish Mash with a beer and dip plate.  xoxo, emily
