Personal highlights

  1. Rift Valley Railway: connecting Uganda with the coast, built in early 1900
  2. First class: paying only 45 dollars for a unique and long lasting experience
  3. Food wagon: getting 3 full meals, dinner (skipped), breakfast and lunch
  4. Meet & Greet: suddenly speaking Swiss German at the breakfast table
  5. Long journey: spending nearly 20 hours on the slow and bumpy tracks
