Odds, Ends, and One Final Election

The last election of 2011 in Uganda was held Monday as Kampalans chose a new mayor. This was a rescheduled voting date, since the initial mayoral election was cancelled after a few hours because pre-stuffed ballot boxes were discovered. Voting was peaceful. The candidate whose name appeared on the pre-checked, stuffed ballots lost, by the way. Poetic justice?

The boy and I recently visited the fantastic Uganda Wildlife Education Center in Entebbe. It's part zoo, part home to distressed or rescued animals. Lots of fun, especially the troupe of moneys who inhabit the UWEC's parking lot! (Click here for photos).

Just six weeks left in Uganda, which hardly seems possible. On April 29, it's off to Cape Town, South Africa for two weeks of teaching (Univ. of Cape Town) and relaxation.
