Around Kampala

Here’s some photos around Kampala. Like most third world countries, they use bikes to cart everything, mainly due to lack of other transport. I was privileged enough to get a visit to the Ugandan Stock Exchange. It may only be small, but at least I can say that I saw it when it was small! Many people visit other countries and get shocked at the living conditions, the food they eat, the transport or just the way of life in general. For me, not much of that is a surprise, although you always see things you didn’t think you’d ever see! When I first saw a picture of the stock exchange though, it was totally different to what I ever expected. I think there’s 12 or 13 companies listed and it all happens in this little engine room – for a few hours, a couple of days a week.
