The road to Soroti

All well in Soroti. The trip here was pleasant--very nice scenery featuring sugar cane plantations, huge round mango trees, interesting wetlands, and enormous neon green tea plantations blanketing gently rolling hills and valleys. You can even smell the tea as you drive by. Very beautiful indeed. The five hours here from Kampala passed quickly.

Soroti itself is charming, and a beehive of business activity of all kinds. The most interesting feature here is Soroti Rock--a giant rock, really a huge rocky hill, right on the outskirts of the town's center. I'll post photos soon of the rock and of Soroti town.
