Really should be packing...

Got stuff laid out in the lab, but as the piles grow, so does the weight and scale of my luggage.

Violence in Uganda

Recent news stories and images from Kampala show storefronts and streets damaged, people shot and killed, and police and soldiers running through the streets. I send my hopes and prayers that this madness will end, and that officials, soldiers and citizens alike will work this out peacefully and without further violence.

Golden Cat Paper Now Online!

Song of the Day: "Rise Up" - U2

2009 highlight

I gave a lecture to local schoolkids whose school is directly beside Kibale. The headmaster is beside me.

It was one of the most amazing things I've ever done - I talked about how I conduct my work, and UWA/FACE Director Wilfred Chemutai talked about how to manage shambas to avoid crop-raiding. The kids were amazing, and I look forward to doing it again!

Song of the Day: "Signal to Noise" - Peter Gabriel

Simone Teelen

Thank you for everything.


Back again, sorry for the long silence. Lots of stuff going on, so i'll just throw a few posts up. Very happy to be home, but miss the forest.

Song of the Day: "Thank You" - Led Zeppelin
