A few weeks ago, I was at the source of the river Nile. Just outside Jinja, Uganda, this body of water separates  from Lake Victoria and sets off to its journey to the Mediterranean. The Nile has contributed to many great and interesting cultures, most famously that of Ancient Egypt, which sparked the creation of the rather successful Western culture. And I've touched it, just where it begins.

PS. There are at least two or three other places around in Africa also claiming to be the source of the Nile, but this one has trees growing out of rocks and big lumps of concrete creating cool waves.
