Eivind in Mbale: A night in Bududa

Yesterday was my study day, and I planned to spend it with Josha visiting some friends of him in a village called Bududa. We went by taxi in the morning, and after they had replaced a leaking tyre and a drunk driver, we drove for about one hour before we reached Bududa.
