Kampala - Rwanda ( 5.January 2016 - 7. January 2016 )
I only cycled from Kampala to Masaka / Uganda. The rest to Kigali / Rwanda I could not cycling because of my strong Malaria sickness. I took a bus from Masaka to Kabale.
I crossed the Equator on 6.January 2016
From Kabale to the border of Rwanda, I cycled, because It was only 25km.
From the border to Kigali, I took also a bus.
Kampala ( Chaos City )
In Kampala , I collected my first Malaria and went to Hospital for one day. The Tour goes on and with my malaria, I continued my way towards Rwanda. i crossed the Equator and reached Masaka. From Masaka I took a Bus to Kabale. From Kabala, I cycled to border with Rwanda. From there I took a car to kigali, the capital of Rwanda.
This Time it was not possible to cycle the long way down. Malaria is very tricky. I felt very weak and could not get enough air for breathing.
In Rwanda I collected my second Malaria. but this time it was not so worse.
My Friend Torsten ( which cycled with me from Nairobi to Kampala ), catched the Malaria Tropica. He is still in Hospital in Leipzig. This Malaria demaged his inner organs. ( Kidneys) He was nearly death, but he was really strong and survived.
I hope he will full recover.

Today I really wanted to start writing my book, but somehow I could not think of anything.
I had so many thoughts flying through my head, but I did not know how to start.
I put things on the table to inspire, but somehow I can not get started.
In any case, I already have the title.
"My little purple bike".
Maybe I'll start writing tomorrow.
Good Night, Friends
