Up untill 13h30 today we have done 33 km and we're busy having lunch at a place called Magara. As we came to shore we heard kids shouting to us. We then realised we were amongst a number of hippo's who started surfacing. They just seem to be so much larger than what you see from the land. A new speed record was set today for the lake - may be an olympic record. We had contact with Bujumbura and understand that a welcoming party has been arranged with a number of motor boats to escort us for the last 10 km into Buja. We are looking forward to it.
After Magara we did another 22 km to bring our total for the day to 55 km, a new record, and the total distance to 750 km. We are south of Kabezi and very tired. It is 19h30 and we are already in "bed". Brent, Louis and Morne.
