On Saturday we visited Titus, the leader of the MFP project, and his rice farm. He has six piglets and a pig, dozens of chickens, and a few goats. I fell in LOVE with the cutest piglet and spent a good while trying to catch her (looking absolutely ridiculous) before someone else gracefully did that for me. I finally understand what a piglet squeal sounds like, and it broke my heart into a million pieces. Titus saw my true love for this adorable piglet and he gave her to me! After contemplating how I was going to take a Ugandan pig back to my parents, he decided to just name her after me and "won't let a soul tamper with it". My beautiful piglet will grow up to live a long and wonderful pig life.
On Sunday we visited Paraa National Park.... which was INCREDIBLE! Butterflies twinkled like Christmas lights all over the grasses, giraffes just casually munched on trees mere feet away, hippos eyed us from the Nile, an elephant waved to us with his trunk! This park has no fence - you step out of your car and you risk getting eaten by a lion. (Which may or may not have happened before?)
Anyways, we made it out alive and have tons of pictures to share later! We love you all.
