Cellphone in Uganda

Standing on the main street of Kabale in southwestern Uganda (about 10 km from the border with Rwanda) talking to Elysa on Tony Cunningham's cell phone. The year is 2001, we had just finished a resource management workshop  for park staff at the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest (see Bwindi Impenetrable Forest), and this was the first time that I had ever made an international call by cellphone. I was accustomed to standing in line at public phone offices and suffering through bad connections, language difficulties, and tiny, stuffy phone booths to call home. Thought cellphone technology was close to magic. [NOTE: Picture, and workshop logistics, by Tony Cunningham (thx, Tony)].
