Jinja is north of Kampala, from Mpigi it is just over a 2 hour drive. Jinja has golf courses, restaurants, hotels, sidewalks, grass...it feels a lot different than Mpigi!! It is also right where the Nile River meets Lake Victoria, the Source of the Nile is a main attraction, as well river rafting. Avin and I have spent a week here volunteering at Amani, we were very fortunate to have been offered a house to stay in while we are visiting here; it belongs to long term missionaries who are in the US on furlough. Avin and I were very surprised by Jeff, Joel and Finn who showed up on our doorstep on our 10 year anniversary!! We are enjoying these few days together as a family, although we are still doing some research and volunteering, it has been a rejuvenating time.
