On our last day in Uganda, we were in the hills just south of Lake Edward as a lorry darted round a bend on our side of the road. I had to brake suddenly and swerve out of his way. We didn't collide but in the next curve, a long downhill, the brakes failed. I had to shove my foot down a couple of times and drive into the rough in order to avoid a near disaster.
The road to Moroto, where we spent the night, was challenging, dry and sandy. Much to our surprise, we then had a new and perfectly tarred road for the next 30 kilometers to Lorengedwat. Just as we were getting the hang of it, the road then gave way to mud which stuck with us, more or less, all the way to Mbale.
