Boda Boda

In terms of cities, Kampala is not going to win any awards.

It isn't the biggest, or most diverse.  It isn't especially cosmopolitan.  It doesn't have rugged scenery, jagged cliffs or meandering rivers.

But...it gets a hell of a lot more interesting when you traverse its dusty, choked streets on the back of a boda boda (motorcycle taxi) for a few thousand shilling.

"Where do you want to go, mzungu (white man)?"

"I don't care, just drive."

Truth lies in the journey, not the port.
-Eduardo Galeano
