    Taking a quick walk around and seen some green bananas for sale.

    This is staple food here and it is called Matooke. It gets mashed into a paste and served with anything and everything. But these green bananas are seriously lacking in essential minerals, nutrients, etc. Because of that, Bill Gates himself is funding a project to genetically modify green bananas, so that people that eat these will get the equivalent of a balanced meal. More info here. Click here.

    Something else that amuses me is how ANYTHING has the potential to get stolen. Even these incredibly heavy rolled steel bars.

    Aw mate, any chance you could bring us back come steel bars? And a wheel barrow, if you can. Fill it with green bananas.

    Not a problem. Shouldn't be a problem getting that on the plane.

    Saw some more interesting sights. Here is a taxi driver catching some naps on his motorcycle.


    A street musician and his colleague. Using gears as drums.


    Here is me dicing with death again. Traffic here is just insane.


    And finally, a fairly poor picture of a bodaboda motorcyclist, showing that it is possible to transport EVERYTHING on his cycle. You can glimpse a bit of a TV, but have unfortunately missed out on the passenger that he is also carrying.

    And just like that, Project Uganda is complete. Sitting in my uncles house, after the trip. One final picture to upload. Taken at Entebbe airport. Me, my mum, my brother and my (step) dad. You can't see it and I might share the story with Gaming Lives one day, but my dad has survived an assassination attempt and still has a bullet lodged in his hip. He is Kampala's 50 Cent.


    Project Uganda? SUCCESS!

    Still, it was nice of him to visit you in Penilee that time though mate, regardless of the outcome

    Glad you had a great time mate, so good to see all the photos

    I hear your brother wants a PS3 too now.
    Surely you can't be serious!

    Thanks for your kind words, everybody. Project Uganda was great and it was fun to share it with my favourite geeks.

    Also, a PS3 is completely out of he question. I am a shameless console fanboy and will pass this on to my brother.
