Apart from the best Rolex in Uganda which I ate at the street stall outside Tule Monde bar there is not a huge choice of places to eat. There are a few basic restaurants near the market area of Koboko where I ate and as I was leaving town at the junction on the Yumbe road I noticed an Ethiopian restaurant which I may well have checked out had I noticed it earlier.
I did all my drinking in this joint and was made to feel really welcome by staff and customers. There were very few people in here drinking although the place was packed out. Most people were chewing qat and crowding around the pool table inside.
A huge bloke that was driving all the way to Yambio and had only stopped off in Koboko to break the journey up paused his game of pool, came over to greet me breifly then came back and presented me with a bottle of Pilsner. Top bloke, Top bar.
Transport from Koboko to Moyo took 1 ½ hours but sadly though it took longer for the car to fill up. I’d arrived at Koboko Taxi park just before 8 o’clock and was sure I id get a lift to MOYO STRAIGHT AWAY but all the vehicles in and around the taxi park were heading towards Yei in South Sudan. Around the entrance to the park was a gaggle of money changers there must have been almost a dozen of them all sat a desks under parasols with piles of Ugandan shillings South Sudanese pounds and Congolese currency neatly stacked up in front of them. The cars going to Yei were all reasonably new people carriers” there must be a few bob in S Sudan as even all the vehicles I had seen in Arua with S Sudanese plates on were fairly flash cars.
