Our day off in Soroti. With the Van we drove down to the Sipi Falls. We had another driver coming with us: our was not yet used to drive in the hills. Just for safety, he hired another driver for us.
There is a small National Park at Sipi’s. We paid our entrance fee, including a guide, who safely led us through the woods, across the highland and down to our car, again. It was a hike of about 2,5/3 hour. Of which we had 2 hours of – partly – heavy rain. For our friends, it was the first hike. Most surely, it was their last one, too.
Enjoyed every minute of the walk! A few parts were quite steep, and my longs didn’t adapt that quickly, but I didn’t care! The nature was amazing, the waterfall – I LOVED! And just being out there exploring the terrain, seeing mostly plants I didn’t now, the sounds, the smell. I was, basically, overwhelmed! Love this country!
At the top, a boy sold us some white passionfruit. Just lovely! Never tasted any better. He walked with us, to carry for us, what we just had bought. At 10/12 years old – he explained in perfect English about the landscape, the county, the country life there and the plants and their use. I was deeply impressed. At the end I gave him a tip. Surely, he had earned it.
Back in the village, we had a coffee at one of the new resorts and then drove back home. What a day!
