I'm in Kampala at the moment. Yesterday, there were demonstrations and rioting. Tear gas, water cannons, and so on. Next week, I'll be in Nairobi, and I'm expecting more demonstrations and rioting there. And then it's off to Montreal for 2 more weeks of... demonstrations and rioting.

Montreal is hosting a huge climate change/Kyoto conference. Thus... you guessed it.
I hope the family trip to visit relatives over the holidays doesn't involve any demonstrations or riots. :)
