Uganda 09 – Day 1: Journey to Jinja

There is just never any way to know how long it is going to take to get to Jinja (where we are staying) from Entebbe (where we land). It can be anywhere from 1 hr 45 minutes, to 4 hours (or even more)! It just depends on traffic. The problem is the city of Kampala, the capital. Even with some new roads they’ve built in the past few years, traffic is still horendous. Well today as we began our journey to Jinja when we were still 15 kilometers from Kampala, we hit “stand-still” traffic, and I knew we were in trouble. After all was said and done, we made it to Jinja in around 3 hours. Could have been worse. Here’s a quick snippet of the experience.
