Camping tonight at a place (Red Chillies hostel) with a swimming pool and pandemonium about watching the new episode of game of thrones, not for me!

Next day a bit of a drive to arrive at the town of Kabale, the base for gorilla trekking - which I had decided not to do since it costs $500 for one of the limited daily permits. In retrospect I wish I had gone, especially since Rwanda has already increased the price to $1500 and Uganda will probably follow suit.

Everywhere you see people wearing old western t shirts with faded brand names and band logos, and football shirts from all over the world.... But i did not accept to see a kid in the old "orange" sponsored darlo shirt!

Next day was a visit to a local school/orphanage, involving much dancing and racing games with the children, and then a dip in the nearby lake Lake Bunyonyi, allegedly the second deepest lake in Africa, dotted with small islands with dubious histories.

The landscape of steep hills is intensively cultivated, terraced and furrowed by hand labour.
We also pass many quarries where men are working with pickaxes and hammers to break down the rock.
Brick manufacturing is popular, with numerous stacks of clay bricks built up with fires lit underneath to dry them out.
