This was our third and final trek to see the gorillas. I’m thinking I should take more movies to record the sights AND sounds. However, I did record them on my phone since some of the sounds were in the dark. After Uganda we fly on to Kenya where we are supposed to see ‘The Great Migration’.
I was fortunate to go on three different gorilla treks and see three different gorilla families in Uganda. These hikes varied in time from twenty minutes to three hours. I have thousands of photos of gorillas with faces hidden by dense leaves and foliage.
The Patara Elephant Sanctuary allows you to get up close and friendly with elephants of all sizes. The sanctuary’s advertisement says you can be an elephant owner for a day. With the elephants walking around freely, our first task was to scrub the mud from their tough skin, then walk them to a large pond and give them a bath.
Bullfighting would be more likely associated with Madrid, Spain than its architecture. However, the draw for me was some uniquely designed buildings and staircases. The bullfights had ended about a month before my arrival.
