Weather in Uganda.
Recently I have been checking the weather online in Uganda. For the past month it has literally only shown storms and lightening but it is also very hot and humid! I think it will be very odd to be living in conditions where it is very hot but with thunderstorms.
Uganda is one of the most active parts of the world for thunderstorms and I'm sure they will be quite different to ones here in England. Also, I will admit that I am not a huge fan of thunder! So it may take me a little while to get used to these thunderstorms - if I get used to them at all that is...!
The area that experiences the most thunderstorm days in the world is northern Lake Victoria in Uganda.
In Kampala thunder is heard on average 242 days of the year, although the actual storms usually hover over the lake and do not strike the city itself.
My 160 mile bicycle ride is coming up quickly, on the 18th-20th June. Have been continuing to train for it and am getting into a good routine with regular trips to the cardio room! Any support given however big or small would be greatly appreciated.
