We walked a long way, as usual. I think Chris was quite bored with our destinations, but he tried to put a bright face on it. And he was positively cheerful when we made our own afternoon dessert from grocery store green tea ice cream and mochi. Afterwards we toddled back to the JR station, our stomachs full with sticky balls.

I could tell you everything we did, but it wouldn't mean much.

I'm still waiting to get nostalgic about Africa, but I'm afraid it may never happen. Chris read of the news yesterday that there was an outbreak of ebola in Uganda that started in Kibale and has spread as far as Kampala. Then I had a nightmare about it. Is that Africa to me? As opaque as if I'd never gone?

Tomorrow we move on to Osaka.
