On the Banks of the Nile






The afternoon of our second day was spent on a boat cruise down the Victorian Nile. We saw many, many hippos cooling off in the water. The crocodiles sleep with open mouths to regulate their body temperature. I couldn't resist singing an old Pioneer Camp song to the kids.
Oh she sailed away
On a sunny, summer day
On the back of a crocodile
"You see," said she "it's as plain as plain can be
I'll ride him down the Nile"
The croc winked his eye as she waved them all good-bye
Wearing a happy smile
At the end of the ride,
The lady was inside
And the smile was on the crocodile!
