Day Twenty-One: End of 3rd Week and 3rd Year

We woke up to a beautiful sunny day on the equator in Entebbe. We had spotted multiple gecko friends in our palatial room the night before, grateful for the help in the fight against our insect foes, we checked up on them in the morning only to find ants devouring one of them. Thankfully the housekeeper was just as surprised and disgusted as we were so we didn't deduct any Travel Bucks™ from ourselves. Travel Bucks being our arbitrary currency that we award ourselves for traveling smartly or being adventurous/frugal.

The majority of the day was spent trying to find the gorilla office and arranging the details for our journey to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park (best named NP in the world). In the evening we enjoyed one of our nicest dinners yet...a romantic techno-Italian meal in a Zen garden restaurant to celebrate our three year anniversary. (Lamp chops in a blueberry mint sauce with mashed potatoes and freshly caught tilapia in an olive pesto from Lake Victoria-Yum!)

We capped off the night with a candlelit game of cribbage on our front porch, which conveniently kept us unaware of the power outages.
