My first weekend in Jinja I was blessed to make friends with one of the locals. I was so excited when he offered to show me around and take me to places most tourists never go. I saw Itanda falls, which are level 5 Rapids on the Nile, spent the day eating lunch with monkeys, and got to go to two different villages.
His village of Namwezi was amazing! His home sits on a hill, and when you climb to the top you can see all of Jinja to Lake Victoria. It was truly breath taking. I met his family, along with his friends. It was truly a life changing experience and I know we will always be friends.
