Colin and I just (as in yesterday) got back from our two week trip to Tanzania. It was a good trip but we are ever so thankful to be home! We went to help a man that took the Water For All drilling course in the spring of 2011, and we were going to help him get a well drilled before he was to teach a class the following week. We took the MAF flight from Soroti to Kampala on a Friday and then we drove to the Uganda/Tanzania border and then drove to Mwanza, TZ. A total of 12 hours in a car...However we got to see some of the most beautiful country EVER! And I do mean ever. I have (along with Colin) never in my life seen such beauty. Just breathtaking! We spent a good part of the first week collecting the materials to drill the well and then started the second week. Our trip was cut short and we headed back to Uganda on Tuesday. We stayed in Kampala for two days and took the MAF flight back to Soroti yesterday morning. We were unable to drill a well and honestly I don't know how well it would have gone because we didn't have any Bentonite to stabilize the wall as we drilled through the sand. But below are a few pictures from our trip.

|We took the ferry across the lake a handful of times and I loved every second of it! I think I could live on the water given the chance!|
|These rocks were everywhere around Mwanza...even where we were going to be drilling.|
|This house was out in the village right next to where we were going to be drilling. It is one of the oldest homes there and I just thought it looked really cool.|
