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.

This new NALA Artwork was painted by Wilfrido Lusitande Piaguaje from San Pablo near Shushufindi at the Amazonas in Equador. Wilfrido used more then 180 hours to paint this
amazing artwork with NALA.
Can you see the toucan that is in the painting?
Nala wanted a toucan so badly that she unfortunately didn't see it while she was wandering around in the forest. Although she saw no animals, she felt an inner peace and marveled at every tree and leaf she saw. It was so incredibly interesting and unique to explore this small part of the Amazon. The many colorful butterflies sat on NALA's hand and told her stories about the sloth, the pink dolphins and the bee elf, the smallest bird in the world.
I'll tell you more about the rainforest later.
See you soon
