About Author: Jessica

Description
I’m Jessica, a lowly intern and vagabond traveler. Also known as a proud Liberal Arts graduate. I’ve been in Kampala since Oct 2011. Fueled with the excitement of creating this guide I’m bouncing around the city at an ungodly pace. I love Kampala and wouldn’t choose to spend this year anywhere else. I have a thing for dancing, places where you can drink coffee all day and bodies of water (pools included).
