“We waited 2 hours for this chick, she better have an accent.”

Who would of thought that this small sentence would begin the greatest week. 22 Americans and 1 Australian took off on an journey that made a small but everlasting impact. We laughed, we joked and we ate carbs. Lots and lots of carbs. We treated everything from weird to wacky. We ate everything from beans to pasta. People changed us and we changed the way we think. We learned the meaning behind the cause and why we do what we do every single day.

Today was like any other day. We got up early, had breakfast on the go and got in the van. Except it was dark and we were trying to race against time. To beat the ferry and get to the other side of Nile River. It was Safari time and we were all a wee bit excited. We saw lions, tigers and bears… well not really just these deer looking things, elephants and giraffe’s. No big deal. Jokes. It was amazing. And I could go on and on, or you could just come with us next time. So we finished the trip discovering the Pearl the Africa and seeing true beauty without the distractions of life. And let me tell you, watching the sunrise of the Nile River is something that I will never forget.
