EATING FRIED GRASSHOPPERS IN UGANDA, AND OTHER STORIES


Floating down the Nile River on a ferry to the grandiose Murchison Falls, watching elephants spray water from their trunks, and taking in the beauty of Africa is undeniably unreal. All of the unpaved dirt roads and impoverishment cannot detract from the sheer natural beauty of Uganda. From sampling fried grasshoppers in an open-air market to going on a safari, get a glimpse of what traveling to Uganda is really like.

The flight to Uganda left me utterly curious. I had never been to Africa before and now I was going to be there for two action-packed weeks. On day one, no time was wasted. The alarm went off at 6 a.m., and while I lamented the lack of sleep, my feelings quickly changed once I was on a ferryboat cruising down the Nile River.

When the boat approached Murchison Falls, I leapt off and hiked to the top of the waterfall for a most fantastic view. About 100 feet in front of me was a sheet of white mist flowing heavily behind two massive boulders. The rocks looked like an entryway for the mist and I wished I could dive straight into it. The lookout over Murchison Falls is intense with sound. It was hard to hear anything other than the roar of the gushing water.
