As a regular to Portobello Road market I am attracted by the range of goods you’re likely to be offered, representing different cultures, different origins, and of course different uses. But to be honest I’m not sure that I’ve ever come across anything there from Uganda, and almost certainly nothing derived from a Ugandan tree, but I think I’d be particularly alarmed, indeed perhaps a little offended, if I was offered Uganda’s sex tree.
I’ve even been to Kampala and nearby Entebe Botanic Garden, and don’t recall anyone asking me if I wanted “something for the weekend, sir?”. In fact the only thing I remember was the presence of millions of spiders on the shores of Lake Victoria. To achieve such numbers, I wonder what they’d been eating?
