Riverboat on the Nile

Today's picture is from 1936, and it shows a riverboat on the Nile River. The Nile actually makes starts in Uganda, at Lake Victoria, one of the largest lakes in the world. How exciting it must have been to be able to take this boat ride.

This is my fourth trip to Africa. Before coming here, I had many misconceptions about the continent. As if it were somehow very backwards. In fact, Africa is a most majestic place. The people are truly wonderful. Very warm, gentle, kind and loving people. There is a very great richness associated with experiencing Africa.


  1. Is the lovely Miss EAM going along with you on this trip? We haven't heard much about her after she returned to Texas.

  2. She still lives in Africa. She was just home for a short visit, but she still continues her work in Africa.
