Sunday ride from Kampala, to Fort Portal, late lunch at the open market next to the busy bus station.  I had very cold hands from riding, hard to believe that I was at the equator and almost had frost bite!  In my excitement to try all the local food, I ordered too much food….Rolex, and njama and beans etc, and felt like a greedy, non appreciative tourist.…. Arriving in Fort Portal, I was surprised to come across a tourist info place, but they had no maps etc, just coffee, and cakes etc…. Rested there, and prepared myself for exploring the Crater Lake area which was awaiting….
