Nocturnal Patrol Tour

I don’t know how it is in other cities and in other economies, but in Entebbe, at 0200h, the roads are almost completely deserted. It is such a good time to go driving around for an hour or more, just taking in all these little roads, at a slow speed. If you have Mandé music and half of a joint of good C. sativa, you will augment the experience even more. It was such a hauntingly-beautiful drive. I will do it again when it has rained or is raining. The silence, the darkness, the sights, the sheer freedom of negligible traffic … it is just too beautiful.
