After bumping into a couple of really good South African dudes at christmas festivities on the lemon, my time here in uganda is rapidly approaching its end. After pretty much the best introduction to kayaking from both steve fisher and myself, the two SA could possibly get (learning to roll in the eddy next to nile special) i have convinced them to head home and buy themselves a "REAL" boat and support their south afican home-boys. As i fly out of Entebbe for Johanasburg, Alysha will make here way back over the border into Kenya with our new souid aufrican bru's to work the remainder or her break in an orphanage. maybe some people on this planet will give back what they take....but after learning to kayak i dont know that i could EVER give back anything nearly as good as boating!!! Sad as hell to say good bye on New years...safe travels

After Spending almost all my time either on the river or destroying myself at "nile liver destroyers". I put aside some time to attempt to make my existance on this earth slighly more usefull. As alysha and i had just returned from Nairobi a few days before, we went out on the road and helped out as best as water babies flailing to get back in water can...Soft Power Health was founded by popular femal paddler Jessie Stone to help fight the large amount of malaria that affects almost 99% or ugandas pouulation. As Jessie had to unfortunatly head back home to the USA and christmas holidays were rapidly approaching we spent 5 fulldays on the task before returning to the water...
Really good times... getting out in the community....turns out boating is not (quite) everything...
