Kampala, Uganda (happy valentine's day)

[ed. note: just wanted to wish my loyal readers, if there are any, a happy valentine's day, especially to my lady readers (now i'm really pushing the envelope on the BTOG readership)]

i came halfway 'round the planet to set sight on the elusive Shoebill, Balaeniceps rex, perhaps the rarest of Ugandan birds...

a beautiful bird...mama must be very proud...

Went out for cappuccinos with Jason today, followed by a little shopping, then lunch at a Mexican restaurant. Gotta love Kampala.

Other than that I'm trying my best to get out of here. There's a chance for cheap chimp viewing up north in Murchison Falls National Park. My luck. There's conflicting info between the Lonely Planet (says it's possible) and the National Reserve Website (no mention of any facilities). Logistically, the Busingiro site might be a bargain, but it's gonna be tough to get to and when I get there I'm gonna have to improvise some camping equipment.
