I decided to go first and did not look down at all before jumping out like I was doing a big belly-flop, then flying downward, and finally feeling the bungee stretch as I came close to the water. It was such an incredible feeling- not scary at all - and no stomach lurch, like I thought it would be. Though I am excited to cross it off my 'bucket list' I will do it again at the next chance I get!
After the four of us jumped, all 15 people rafting that day got our gear (helmets, life-jackets, and oars) and were divided into 2 rafts and given our marching orders. I had no idea how intense this rafting would be. To keep it brief, we completely flipped and lost everyone 3 times, I was bumped off a total of 5 times, and I would rate the rafting as three times more terrifying than bungee jumping. It was a blast, but terrifying!
The day ended with a BBQ and bus ride back to Kampala. Sean, Olivia, and I ended up meeting up with our Norweigan friends and their host, Jimmy, in Kabalagala for a fun night with new friends.
