Here an impression of the hectic inner city of Kampala, the capital of Uganda and an exiting and lively place.
Built on seven hills like another famous city, the residential neighbourhoods are quit green and calm, but the town center is a hectic and vivid place day and night filled with people walking and riding.

I guess you are refering to Kiev in Ukraine as "the other famous city" built on seven hills ;-). Otherwise there doesn't seem to be any resemblance between downtown Kampala and any other famous city. It is certainly crowded and looks quite exciting and i know visitors generally appreciate Kampala. It also looks like the kind of place where people will always be stepping in front of the camera when you attempt street-photography. I love the warm light and the bright colours.

Dit is een beeld dat ik nog nooit gezien heb, man, wat een drukte, ik zou draaierig worden wanneer ik daar lang naar kijk.
Maar uw foto is echt perfect en toont heel goed wat er daar in de straten gebeurd.
Ook de kwaliteit and de kleuren van de foto zijn perfect.
Mooi gedaan, bedankt.

Hi Gerrit. Nice to see you posting from Africa since very little is coming from there and on TE it would remain the dark continent if it wasn't for individuals like yourself. Impressive hubbub of activity. Looks as if you were the only Caucasian there. Regards. Klaudio.

Hello Gerrit - This shot of Kampala has a far less sanitized look than the streets one sees in Namibia. This looks vibrant and full of life and typically African 'organised chaos'. An excellent DL shot which captured the essence of a bustling African city.

Good evening Gerrit,
A vibrant town scenery, packed with action. Yet I could not avoid the "feel" of a third-world scenery, which not accustomed to western eyes.
Excelent clear details, depth and multi-colors scene.
Have a nice weekend,

You narrated very well about the situation of Kampala, the capital of Uganda, very busy like other thickly populated town. Good composition and well POV, color is very natural.
with warm regards and have a nice weekend, good luck,

I wanted to get to this photo yesterday but i ran out of critiques.
this may be the best of the bunch from Uganda that you've posted so far.
the chaotic organisation is everywhere.
lots of traffic, lots of foot traffic, lots of congestion.
the photo shows that well.
lots to keep my eyes busy too.

I guess you really captured the atmosphere of the city! Everyone seems so busy here and moving from one side to the other, traffic, stores...A real African city. I like this!

It looks like a total chaos in vivid color. Is it dirt street or paved? It is crowds and more crowds as far as the eye can see, TFS.
