The SoCalled Movie

Sorry to those of you outside of the USA who can't watch this movie because I embedded it from a website that only works in the USA, (at least I don't think you can... can you? ) but its a documentary about a band called SoCalled, which is pretty much an awesome mixture of klezmer and hip-hop. Listen to more of their music here.

Africa Bathroom Photo Journal. Entry 1.

This is the start of a series of posts about different bathrooms, toilets, holes in the ground, and other such areas to go when nature calls that I have seen and used in my travels in Uganda.

The toilet depicted below is in a gas station where we stopped to get fuel on the way to Murchison Falls.  On a scale of 1 to 10, I would say this one is a 2.  Oh yeah!!

Open the door...

Step inside. 

Note the feet shaped outlines telling you where to put your feet.

Dead Lizard, Dead Bug

The Wild Forest Of Mabira

Walking around in the Mabira Forest

My three trusty guides.

Safari ants. It hurts a lot if they bite you.

This is a hollow tree.

This is me inside of the hollow tree.

This picture is sideways. Sorry.

That's my tourguide. He grew up in the Mabira Forest.

Can you see the red tail of the monkey?
