11 Jun Getting Our Adrenaline Rushing in Jinja, Uganda
Written by Andree Nesta Rosen and Liam Russel, 2014 East Africa Discovery.
Jinja, Jinja Jinja. Our stay might have been short but it was nothing short of amazing. We stayed at a lodge called Adrift that overlooked the Nile. Some of us played football (soccer), others explored the downtown area (got lost may be a more accurate description), and others simply relaxed, taking in the beautiful landscape that surrounded us. We couldn’t go too crazy – we had to keep some energy for the crazy day ahead of us. Some of us were actually quite nervous and turns out we might have had reason to be.
But hold on – there’s more! Since white water rafting really wasn’t exciting enough (I’m out of breath just writing this), half of the group bungee jumped over the Nile! We have a veteran with us (Catherine) but for the rest of us (Andrée, Jeremy, Kiana, Liam), it was our first time bungee jumping. Not all of us kept our cool, but we were all proud of surviving these last 24 hours!
