The Waterfall Men

There is a place in Uganda where a raging river crashes through a valley.
Bujagali falls.
No-one goes near it…..
Standing on the overhanging rocks is a complete rush.
Powerful white booming water that sucks away all the air around – and sprays back humid mist.

There are some men who live next to this river, and make a life out of sliding into the river a little higher up the valley….
…And riding the white-water over jagged rocks…
…rushing past the onlookers with no protection.
They diasappear for a minute or two – longer than you think they can hold their breathe under the pounding wash, and then surface and wave.
Amazing.
