OK, so I haven’t had a lot of time to right over the last 24 hours. In fact it is 7am here in Uganda and I am getting ready for a 2hr dive into Kampala. We have to meet with the Embassy, our attorney, and Joyce is getting her pins taken out of her arm…keep us both in your prayers for that one!
I just wanted to take a few minutes and tell you that yesterday was one the most amazing days in my life. Most of my trips here have been consumed with hours in the car, visits to the lawyer’s office, doctor’s offices, embassy appointments and more hours in the car! However, yesterday me and another guy who is here with his family to adopt took the day to go do man stuff! I mean real man stuff!
We went whitewater rafting on THE Nile River, class 4 and 5 rapids all day long. For those that don’t know what a class 4 or 5 rapid is…those are the ones that make you say holy crap…or a few other not so spiritual words!
Then, I bungee jumped from 145ft above the Nile. I have never felt such a rush! Words can’t even begin to describe the felling. It was something I will never forget.
When we were driving back to the orphanage, we drove over the Nile from a very high bridge. As we looked down over the water, there was a big alligator (or croc, not sure what they have here) sitting on a big rock in the middle of the river. To be as big as he was from where we were I would put him at least 6-8 feet long. That put our rafting trip on a whole new level!
