Ramblings of things that catch my ever-shifting attention. Well written? Only by accident. Deep thoughts that will enlighten and inspire? I hope not. A candid, yet often superficial, glimpse of the churning information in my mind? Possibly.

Let's begin this post on a positive:
the view of Kibuli Mosque from the food court a the new Oasis shopping mall. The mosque is very picturesque on top of the hill and can be seen from all over Kampala city. I was meeting a friend this afternoon at Good African Coffee (trade, not aid; look for it on Tesco shelves in the UK) in Nakawa, and from their balcony you also get a spectacular view of the mosque on Kibuli Hill.
So I was feeling froggy today, and I googles fake Uganda. These two words were on my mind for a few reasons I guess. There have been stories in the newspapers recently pertaining to fake goods being sold in Uganda. Speaking of fake goods, and before I reveal what really motivated me to do the search, let me show you the results of that search.
Fake. Fake. Fake. The fake cement scares the hell out of me. With all the construction that is going on in this city, it's really scary to think a building might come tumbling down... with me (or anyone) in it. But I'm a risk taker... so life marches on...
