R iding my BMW F 650 GS motorcycle throughout Africa has become my passion. Accompanied often by my FSO spouse, Regional Refugee Coordinator Jean Woynicki, and Mission Kampala’s Nurse Practitioner Terry Banen (on his BMW R 1200 GS), we take in Uganda’s beautiful scenery and colorful roadside villages as we dodge potholes and livestock. On our way to Fort Portal one day, we encountered these young boys when we stopped for a rest break. Fascinated by the bikes, they gathered around us with great curiosity. I pulled out my camera and snapped a photo, which to their great delight, I then showed them on the display. n John Woynicki Jr. is a registered architect and has served in eligible family member positions in Abidjan, Oslo, Kigali, Berlin and Kampala. He took this photo with a Nikon D7000 with a 28-80mmNikkor lens at f/5.6 at 66mm.
