I’ve just returned from Ngamba Island, my last real experience in Uganda. It was SO much fun. I got to feed and play with chimpanzees, and then we took them on a walk in the forest. Turns out chimps are lazy, so really we walked and they were carried. But it was a great time. The chimps are so much like people, even their hands look like human hands. Actually, they kind of reminded me of the kids at work, because some were really needy, some were defiant, some were goofy. It was a real trick getting them to do what they were supposed to. Staying on the island was great too… it was in a tent, but how they set it up it didn’t seem like it at all, and it was the most comfortable bed I’ve had the whole trip.
Anyway, tomorrow I fly out and will stay overnight in London and then I’ll be home! It went by so fast!
