When I set out from New Jersey in 2007, I had hoped to split the trip into two distinct sections: a one-year ride through the Americas, and a one-year ride through eastern Africa. As they often do, things changed once on the road. The ride to Buenos Aires took a year and a half. And while in Cusco, Peru, I was offered an incredible job with an educational development organization in Uganda. Once I reached Buenos Aires I flew to Uganda, where I worked and lived for a year and a half. At the end of my contract there, three years after starting my ride, I decided to end the trip and fly back home. My time in Uganda, and the short few-day bike trips I took there, however, showed me just how spectacular the cycling in Central East Africa can be. One day I’d love to return :)
