I'm back.
I did it again and pissed in the source of the nil for the last time on the last night.
Next day we had to empty the resort, The last bus left at about 12, Damn that long way.

Nuagara hotel was full, We had to spend the night in another one called Antonio sessions club or whatever. No, I won't be able to say goodbye to my friends :-(

I slept early, Next day we were supposed to go to the city, But they told me that I have to go to Niagara because there's a bus leaving to the airport.
Good, I can say goodbye to all my friends.

To the airport and the 1st kiss in my life ;-)
Flight delay again.
Departure at 8:15 or so, It was supposed to b at 5:40

To Adis Ababa, The other flight to Cairo airport and here I'm!

Downloading my email.

A lot of people are leaving now.

Cool Day!

Yesterday was a day off, We went to an outing, We had four, I choose to go to the fishing village.
We walked for about an hour and a half in the forest. Come on! It's cool but I guess it's a fake forest. WE found a water pipe there ;-)
Anyway, I wasn't going to go but I changed my mind on the last minute. I went without a sun protective cream and with my slippers.
Imagine walking in a forest with them.

We reached a village, The guide had no idea that we were supposed to go back by a boat. We had to argue with him and it was raining.
At last we went back to the venue. Food yes!

Damn, Sun burns hurt.

At 6 we had the bazaar and it was really fun and guess what ? I've got a Creative Commons
tattoo. I guess I'm now under a CC license and that I'm no longer the property of myself!

Before that we had a session on beer-bottles opening. With your teeth, eyes, GSM phone, lighter, With another bottle and finally with an Ethernet cable although it failed!

This ginger tea from Patrice is cool!

In the bight we had an open mic. You can go, Hold the mic and sing!

After that we danced until 1 am or so, We went after that to sit by the fire and eat the fish we bought today!

@nd day, It's raining. I had to take a bath with cold water because I felt dirty :-(
Damn the food here is delicious!
Tracks in the morning.

I'll give a session in the evening on how to compile a kernel.

I gave it, Cool. I had two people and we talked about the kernel, the proc filesystem, The init process, ...........

There should be 3 films by now: Revolution OS, Go OS and Pirates of the silicon valley. I don't feel like watching any.
Looks like my batteries charger is fucked and it doesn't work. No more photos :-(

Africa source 2, 3rd day.

Submitted by msameer on Mon, 09/01/2006 - 7:07pm

The 1st day of Africa Source. It was raining in the morning, I slept with my clothes, It was a bit cold.

Awesome morning circle with awesome people.

I've been told by someone "It was sunny so I didn't really identify her" that I have the best smile!

OK, The tracks were held in the afternoon. So fa so good. I was leading the hands-on part and explaining the ubuntu installation to people.

In the night we had local dancers for a traditional Ugandan dance, Was cool to sit by the beech beside the fire All the people are laughing after the beer ;-)
My sun burns are hurting :-(
Anas Tawileh is here!
I slept with my clothes also ;-)

Africa source 2, 1st day.

Submitted by msameer on Sat, 07/01/2006 - 8:56pm

It all started in the airport.
After the check in and everything, We found that the flight will have a 1 hour delay.
Had the worst cappuccino and pizza ever.
Thomas cook didn't have dollars!! Only Euros.

Up and down, asking, coming and going, in continuous sleep. ...........
We knew that the airport is closed because of bad weather.

At the end, The flight took of at 8 am instead of 3 am!!!
Probably we missed the other flight to Uganda but they delayed
the flight for us until we reach Addis ababa ;-)
In addis ababa we met Arun and fred along with a new cool Africa Source guy.
He's still studying and has his own company !!! Gotta talk to him again.

It's amazing how I can drink coffee and sleep immediatly ;-)

In the 1st flight, I asker for chicken and beef for the 2nd one.

Now I have a question: How can a muslim ensure that this beef is halal ?
No answer!

At the hotel we met a lot of other people, No one from TTC yet.

Tomorrow "after a few hours from now as it's already +12 here ;-)" We'll
be going to the venue.

To the middle of the town to exchange some money.

It's strange that they have the same driving habits here, But looks like
the micro-busses are behaving in a better way.
They also drive on the left side of the street "damn!"

The interesting thing here is that the greater the currency banknote you give
to the guy, The greater the exchange rate you'll get even if you exchange
a small portion.

Anyway, back to the hotel.

I had a walk around and guess what ? I hit a prostitute.
Her from Roanda IIRC and her father died probably, Her mother is in some funky country. She's an Ugandan passport and work as a tailor. She design clothes.

Her boyfriend left her and went to work in south Africa.
Her baby is with her mother now,

I went to her to here place which wasn't far away. We spend a few minutes there
"No, Nothing happened, You know me".
We went to walk around and then back to the hotel where I found all the
people worried about me and my supper is cold.

I invited her to a beer, This was my second beer today and the strange thing that I wasn't able to complete it "we had to exchange money to pay for the 1st one ;-)".

She insisted to go to my room, I refused and even if I didn't, They won't
allow her inside.

At 12 or so, I walked her to the gate, Gave her a hug. She wanted to go to my room
But I'm not really planning for this and even if I do, It's not allowed.
She then asked me whether I'll go with her home, I said No!
She asked for money to buy beer and a candle but I told her that I don't
have. She lives in a place with no electricity and she's using candles.

We talked about a lot of things, Life, Egypt, Love, Politics, War in her country, ...
She was fond of my hair ;-)

She told me that I'm handsome! Well, I don't believe I'm and I won't believe
it more when a prostitute is telling me this!

BTW: She's 23, I have pictures of her ;-)

Good night, I have to wake up early!
