Why Kampala?

Well I couldn’t say exactly when I started on this journey …. several lifetimes ago it seems … but I applied to VSO
Voluntary Services Overseas a year ago, had my assessment day 3 months later and was offered my third placement offer this November.

It came down to a choice between working with farmers in Ghana (my agricultural experience extends to weeding a few flowerbeds so I could have been everso slightly out of my depth here) … campaigning to prevent AIDS in Cameroon (working in French for an organisation with a strong Catholic guiding philosophy, ooo la la, that was a close shave) … or working with bloody great elephants and hippotumusssssesss [must learn how to spell that one in the next two years], while living in a four bed apartment complete with House girl!

A tough decision indeed, so in February 2009 I’ll be joining UCF – Uganda Conservation Foundation – as their new Marketing Development Manager – christ, now what do I do?!
