Well today was quite the adventure. We ate an amazing breakfast then ran outside to take pictures of the baboons in the back of the hotel. We got almost 3 feet away from them and then they chased after us, they are actually very frightening. Then we boarded the bus and went to the start of the Nile River. The Nile is actually 75% from Lake Victoria 5% from other rivers and 20% from underground streams. We took a tour around the area on a boat and then went on an island in the middle of the lake. A few of us women crossed into shallow water to reach a small island. We then got back into the boat and headed out into the water. The guide of our boat took us in the middle of the lake and jumped in and of course I followed. I was the only one who jumped into the Nile. It was quite the adventure. We then traveled to Tororo in the bus. Briefly stopping at a sugar cane field and then for food. We would pull over on the road and about 50 people would crowd around the bus selling the best chicken in the world, it is called chicken on a stick. We got to the hotel and unloaded the bus. We then took a tour of True Vine Ministry and got to hold the kids. We are back at the hotel now and are very tired. Goodnight.
