The story behind "Cyclist at the equator, Uganda"

When going from Uganda’s capital Kampala to the Rwenzori mountains, we of course had to stop near the big white line that was drawn across the road: the equator!
I never knew it was an actual line, but there it was :)

Anyway, I also got some time to take a few pictures of the local people and what I enjoyed most was to see them cycle. Being from Amsterdam, I am used to cycle all the time (I do not have a car, nor need one) and over here it is normal to carry people on the back of the bike.

Funnily enough Africans are always very surprised when they find out that a blond westerner knows how to ride a bicycle and actually enjoys it :)
