Is it possible to go out with semi-attractive people and not be sleeping with them? I like to think it is. Come on, I know the sex factor weighs in heavily, but it does not always dominate. (Or am I weird?) I was out tonight with an old friend. We went to a movie then out for a drink. I ran into an acquaintance at the pub, and when I wished him (the acquaintance) a good night, he gave me that suggestive eye (you know the one I’m talkin’ about) and assured me that I’d have a great night. In the words of Clueless’s Cher, “As if!” As a matter of fact, I took a boda, alone, to Bugolobi, bought samosas and mandazi from a vendor and went home to make herbal tea, type this blog post, read a little in The Kite Runner (Yes, my reading hiatus due to Valhalla Rising is over) and go to bed...alone. It’s not impossible.
I was walking home form Katch the Sun yesterday, up Bandali Rise, and I noticed a new signpost by the road.
It was for a new tour company set up by my friend, Amy. How exciting for her! She’s worked with tourism—specifically tourism in Uganda—for many years in various capacities, and she took the leap and went out on her own. It cannot be easy starting up one’s own business. What a great move for her with tremendous possibilities! Starting my own business would be one of my worst nightmares; I can’t imagine anything scarier. Amy is super hard-working and knows her stuff. If you are planning a safari in Uganda and need to book a tour, call Amy at Safari Solutions.
