That Space between Places

I have just come back to Kampala from a trip up to north western Uganda where, if you cross the Rwenzori Mountains you would be in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. At the foot of that mountain range is a section of the Nile river where it shunts through a 6m wide cleft, falling dramatically as it opens onto a stretch of green and vital life. It is also a place where conversations quickly turn to the movements across the mountain - of men with guns or refugees with recent memories of an ongoing conflict. I recall this because I want to make a small point about contrasts.
