Last weekend was a wild adventure … in Jinja, Uganda.
I’m not sure that I can do justice to our trip on this blog …
Here’s a high-level overview:
Camping … rafting class 5 white water rapids on the Nile … torrential rains … vehicles sliding in ditches … pushing vehicles out of ditches … wenching vehicles out of ditches … walking 5km barefoot through Ugandan villages covered in mud … catching a ride with a few Scotsmen in a Sudanese landcruiser … drinking a few beers at the Scotsmen’s house … getting a lift back into Jinja … hiring a piki-piki (motorcycle … not advised but required given the circumstances) to get a lift back to camp … lots of beers and laughing in an attempt to rationalize what ensued that day … best chapatti breakfast ever … bungee jumping over the Nile … arrival back in Eldoret.
You’ll have to ask me in person after a cocktail or two if you want the full story! I have a feeling the story will always start …”This one time in Uganda” …
