This was a trip organised by members of SUBW during the Christmas
holidays of 1989/90. The party was - Bob Sault, Tony Norman, John
Atkinson, and David Noble.
After meeting up at Naroibi - Bob found that his main pack had not
arrived. Three of us had flown in from Australia via Bombay. Bob had
flown in from USA where he was working. We did a short trip to a visit
a volcano a bit out of town.

We then headed to Mt Kenya, where we did a circuit walk around this
Point John - Mt Kenya
When we got back to Naroibi - we found that Bob's pack had arrived - so
it off to Uganda. The first part of the journey was by train. Here the
train travels down into the Rift Valley
In Uganda, we travelled by bus to Kampala where we stayed a night.
Above - Some small change - this big pile of notes was about US$100. We
needed a special bag to carry the notes around in. You had to count out
hundreds of notes just to pay for breakfast.
We then hada long slow bustrip to Kasese where could organise our trip
into the Mountaisn of the Moon - the Ruwenzori Mountains. We stocked up
at the markets and then got a lift to the trackhead to organsie our
guide and porters.
