Kampala is going mad. Not so long ago the "capital" of Uganda was a sleepy town but in the last few years building work is going on all over the city. Every little plot seems to have all sorts of little shops squeezed in to every available inch that isn't occupied by a taxi or boda-boda.
When I a stay in Kampala I like to stay bang in the middle of town with easy access to taxi and bus parks and within a mango's throw of Owino market.
This photo to the left was taken from my room. To the right beyond Owino market and Nakivubo stadium is the recently built mosque situated on Old Kampala hill.
The mosque has been built with money from Libya and Gaddafi has promised to pay the utility bills for the first few years of its existence. After that it is hoped that the shops that are built in the arcade surrounding the mosque will help pay for the mosques upkeep.
The centre of town is chaotic and travelling through Kampala during the day can take forerver. To releave the chaotic traffic in the city a dirty big by-pass is being built as I write this. You wont have to travel far before you bump into huge road works constructing great bridges to carry the by-pass over existing roads through the city.
I was having a nice quiet beer in a bar in Old Kampala when I realised there was a new building being constructed... more travel advice
