Fort Patiko

Today we visited a slave fort, where Arab Traders held and sorted African slaves. It is not what one would expect of a traditional fort in Canada, as they made use of the natural rock and caves. The scenery was beautiful, but the worst part of the human nature is exposed the raw and it hangs in the air here.  Once leaving the site to return to Gulu, you pass memorial sites where massacres occurred during the recent civil war in Northern Uganda.
