Here’s a bit of what I got to do over the weekend.
[At the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust]
The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is an elephant orphanage where they rescue baby elephants whose parents have been killed by predators, poachers, etc. They currently have 20 elephants. The two above are 4 months old and 6 months old (the bigger one being the youngest one). Aren’t they adorable?? Makes me want to adopt an elephant.
After 24 hours of travel, I finally arrived. I’m in Nairobi! The sky is clear, the weather is cool and people are extremely friendly. As soon as I opened the cab door, I could hear the loud voices of the crowd sitting on the patio of the hotel restaurant. Apparently, there is an all-you-can-eat buffet of pork ribs every Thursday night that attracts people from all over town. Sounds pretty good to me.
Hopefully I get to taste a lot of the local food, and take pictures. Stay tuned.
