Now we are in denial

Woops, I meant, now we are in de Nile!  Today was our first Saturday at Kibuye and we thought we would spend a relaxing day at home.  However, after breakfast, John Cropsey stopped by our house to invite us to join him and a few others on a short day trip to the source of the Nile river, which happens to only be about an hour drive from Kibuye.  Well, we could not say no to that offer.  It is the rainy season now, so as you can see from the photos it is a bit cloudy and rainy, but nevertheless, it is still beautiful.  This is the southern-most source of the Nile river and was discovered in the 1930s by a German historian and explorer.  Above this area, you can hike to a small pyramid atop a hill, built by the same explorer, with stunning views of the Burundian countryside all around.  

Notice the bathrooms just upstream from the source of the Nile:)

And apparently it is okay to let your kids take their shoes off and walk around in it

This photo was taken BEFORE we discovered there was a bat hanging just behind Steph's head
