Hippos, hippos everywhere…

Greg James updates his Radio 1 blog…

Good evening lovely people.

Wow.  What a da y.  Exhausting – so so tired, we are all so almost over this week of hell and high water.  One last big push tomorrow and we’ll be very happy campers.

Today was a long old slog – unending winding river with really dodgy bits full of hippos which, at times, were incredibly threatening.

I have learned so much this week – a real life changer. I’ve always seen this place like we all have on Comic Relief films, but being here I can report back (and you can trust me) that the money you raise is absolutely working.  It’s putting kids through school so THEY can shape a decent future for themselves.  The cause works – I’ve seen it for myself.  So if you’ve donated this week – thank you.

Bedtime.  Shattered.  ONE more day.  We’re ready.
