Fort Portal Updates

In August we visited Fort Portal and sister Priscilla, a gynaecologist of Virika Hospital. We stayed in Lisieux Centre, a guesthouse/congress centre of the congregation, not far from the hotel mountains of the moon, in Nyabukara, Nyaika avenue. A lovely peaceful place to be, looking out over the Rwenzori mountains, basic but clean and well maintained by sisters. The home made meals are excellent as is the service, for example laundry. Price: single 35.000 ush, double 45.000 ush, meals 10.000 ush including drinks; We highly recommend this guesthouse; Everybody is welcome there, and you will feel both free and at home. Moreover, with your stay you support all activities of the congregation in the field of health and social care and education. On our way to Kampala we had an excellent break for lunch in Kyenjojo, in Tooral Royal Cottages, plot 19-33 Hoima Road; At the end of our tour we organised a private performance of traditional dancing in Ndere centre (as mentioned in your guide). However, different from what is mentioned in the guide, public performances are on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, while on Thursdays a private performance can be arranged as we did (for a group of 7), for prices far below of what we usually pay for a musical in the Netherlands or in the UK. Just negotciate. We were welcomed as kings! Ndere centre, Stephen Rwangyezi, director. With kind regards Jos en Noor Rooijackers The Netherlands
