In the summer of 2012, I spent two months living and working in Kampala, the capital of Uganda. I was sent there to collect data for my dissertation, and obviously had fun in the meanwhile.

African adventures – my first thoughts on Kampala

How to get mugged in Uganda – yes, it happened. Most unfortunate.

Settling into life in Kampala

Entebbe Day 1, Day 2, Day 3 – weekend trip to the town of Entebbe

Whitewater rafting in Jinja

The source of the Nile – we visited the place where the Nile begins!

Tororo travels – I was invited to Tororo (a little town near the Kenyan border in Eastern Uganda) to see a fellow immunology lab and meet the staff.

Jinja, round 2 – I returned to Jinja for some work

“Working” in Jinja – here’s what I did when I was there for the second time

Jinja day (and infections) – life around Jinja and a couple nasty infections (BE WARNED: this post contains a few gross pictures)

I owe you – I’m clearly still working on a couple of those posts :/
