Uganda and stops between

12/29/2016: We woke up early, before sunrise even, probably due to jet lag. Outside, it was very foggy, and pretty much nobody was out, but we took the metro over to the Dubai Creek Park anyway. When we got there, we found nearly all the gates to be closed. We walked around on the outside, and we eventually found the one open gate. From there, we walked around the park where the only other visitors were people fishing next to the no fishing sign.
