I promise I'll try to use my words later and actually write a post about what's been going. For now, here are some pictures of the safari I went on a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, we didn't have power at our house before we left and so my camera didn't get charged so I don't have nearly as many as I wanted. Either way, it was so fun to spend the weekend with the girls I've been living with. We laughed so much and got to experience some amazing things.
|We spent the first night at a hostel in Kampala. It was kind of stressful and we were the biggest group of American idiots you've ever seen but it was still a good time.|
|We drove four hours out to the animal reserve and it was almost like driving through the Lion King movie. It was so insanely pretty. This picture doesn't get even close to doing it justice.|
|The second morning we went on a game drive and we saw tons of giraffes! At one point there were probably thirty of them surrounding our van.|
|This is everyone else being sheltered from the raging elephants while I sat out in the open to be demolished. So good, though.|
|Little tiny village in the middle of nowhere. Literally. There is absolutely nothing for miles. I'm amazed by these people.|
|After the game drive we took a ferry ride up the Nile to Murchison Falls. It was so beautiful. There were elephants and crocodiles and birds everywhere along the way.|
|One of the grass huts that we stayed in. It was so sweet.|
So, the safari was a huge success! We seriously laughed so much and I got so much closer to the girls. It was really fun to get away from Lugazi and get to see other parts of Uganda. I thought the safari would be kinda lame. Sort of like just looking at animals at the zoo but it's really not. It's sweet because you're just looking at the rhino and then all the sudden your guide is freaking out and telling you to run the other direction and you freak out and realize that you're actually just in the wild with these huge, awesome animals. It's sweet. I wish I could do it again. I don't want you to be jealous. But seriously, it was so great.
