Post bus to Kabale and boda boda to Lake Bunyonyi

Feb. 27, 2013

6 am boda boda (motorcycle taxi) from Red Chilli hostel to Post office where I bought a ticket and climbed aboard the Post bus from Kampala to Kbale. The ticket was 25,000 Uganda Shillings ($10) for the 9 hr. ride. The Post bus delivers mail along with transporting passengers. There was only one official bathroom stop and 2 "short stops" in which we stopped on side of the road and looked for a bush. No lunch breaks but plenty of vendors storming the windows of the bus whenever we stopped. Meat on a stick, grilled corn on the cob, some type of pastry, and all varieties of drinks and fruits. When I got off the bus to go to the restroom I had to take both of my bags with me or else they would be gone when I returned.

After finally arriving at Bunyonyi Overland Resort, I asked and got a dorm room for $15 a night. Expensive but beautiful lake and location. Here for 3 nights and then to Kisoro, the staging ground for the mountain gorillas.
