... out of my nose. Louise and I ended up so far down stream that we had to be rescued by one of the other boats. We got lots of high fives for the impressive performance!
We flipped again at rapid number 12, but this time is was not as dramatic, so we thought we had gotten the hang of it. When we flipped for the third time it was back to being very dramatic.

Our first thoughts on Africa is what a fantastic place, but as always its the people that make or break a place. It took a few days for us to stop thinking that the locals weren't actually looking at us like walking ATMs, as they did in Asia.
