I have come across people wondering how I do this. I am talking about the walking. They wonder how I walk from the city to the Buganda palace. My answer is always ” I love walking, Its healthy and I can manage to do it.” Well, I think most people in my country are lazy, we are used to boarding taxis or using “boda bodas” bikes. Most of my friends are like that, they would rather get a taxi from Kampala road to Jinja road than walking. One time a man told me “I can’t believe you are girl and you are doing kind of work like a man does, its good of you.” I smiled and told him walking is not that hard as people make it seem to be.
There are many advantages in walking if only we took time.
|If we took off time to walk everyday, these are the advantages.|
Most of the people walked on the tours are older and it is impressive that they are still energetic to do that. I have heard that abroad people walk and do a lot of cycling, hence keeping the bones strong and active. Well,, who doesn’t want stronger bones and joints?
|Lets ditch the taxis and “boda bodas” (Bikes) some times and walk.|
I know the roads in Kampala are challenging to have a walk, but if you have been around for a while, you get used to how things work. I have often forced my friends to walk with me but it comes with whining, that it is my job and that is why I am not bothered. But I always win. And I enjoy walking with clients because a group walk is less tiring and more fun. Could not ask for more exercising.
|Walkers are happy people.|
Everybody who enjoys walking, why not join me? You will no regret it. Happy walking.
