My Family Visits Part VII: Jinja

Our last activity together before my family went back to America was to visit Jinja where the Nile River starts. Melissa went a day before us and risked her life white-water rafting and bungee jumping over the Nile.

We met up with Melissa and took a boat out to the Source of the Nile River. We saw the place where the Nile comes out of Lake Victoria. Rwanda and Burundi also claim to hold the source of the Nile River but for us this day, we said Uganda holds the title. It was a beautiful day out on the water but bittersweet as we knew our time together was coming to an end.

I am very thankful my family had the opportunity to visit East Africa. It was a great trip exploring much of Uganda and Rwanda and living my life for a time. Next family vacation? We'll see what country I live in next.
