For the last week, I have been traveling around a little. Spent 4 days on a safari organized by NVS - the volunteer organization I am working with here. The arrange an inexpensive trip with 3 days in the Masai Mara National Game Reserve and 1 at Lake Nakuru National Park. It exceeded all my expectations. I saw all of the big 5 animals - buffalo, rhino, leopard, lion and elephant - and tons more! Here are a few of my pictures. (More to come when I get faster internet) The lions on the left were fighting over a female. We saw this in our first 30 minutes of our first game drive in the Masai Mara. I was also surprised at the number of young we saw - lion cubs, elephant, giraffe, monkeys, hippos, rhinos.
For the last two days I have been in Zanzibar, but I miss the sweet faces of the Children's Hope Home and have decided to head back there tomorrow, cutting my travels short to spend my last week with the children who have captured my heart. They are hard to resist.
