“It’s our history that’s letting us down. What are we known for? Idi Amin, disease, poverty, all negative things.”
Not my words…but those of the Uganda Tourism Association in response the numbers of cancelled visits to Uganda due to the recent Ebola Virus outbreak. Now Tom and I have spoken about this, and have come up with a plan for avoiding this deadly disease;
1. We stay in the vehicle at all times and pass our documents out using a big stick
2. We draw straws to see who leaves the vehicle to retrieve said document, and stick.
Joking aside, this now changes things slightly. We now have to avoid all hospitals, medical centres and infected monkeys. Cue scenes of Cuba Gooding Jnr and the Hoffman in their outbreak proof suits…I wonder if they will fit in my luggage?
