5 a.m. is a terrible time to be setting off to Entebbe. Already the temperature is warm and humidity high. We loaded Mohammed's red hippy bus for the last time, wondering why it is that bags seem heavier on the way home. Students rather fractious this morning, accusing people of losing their torches, cigarettes, make up, gifts etc. Sade is staying in Kampala for a few days but she got up to see the others off, which was nice. It was still dark when we set off to the airport, and the sky lightened over Lake Victoria as we arrived. Mohammed did rather well since, in addition to a substantial tip he was the surprised recipient of a bag full of pumpkins and yams that Amina's aunt had given her but which she can not bring through customs.
I hope the others bring good reports of Gorilla gorilla beringei...
Goodbye red bus, temporary goodbye to Phil who has inspired us all; until next time Uganda!
