... Thursday morning: another game drive, saw mongoose, lions mating and a leopard on a tree branch. Now driving back to campsite near Arusha. Friday morning: went for a village walk through mto wa mbe village. Went into a school for 3 to 6 year olds, which was one large room with about 85 kids and 3 teachers in it. Chaos! Also had lunch in the village and finished it off with fruit dessert platter, including delicious red ...

... this is a small island 30 min away on a junk. Not really a Chinese Junk, just a boat that was a pile of junk. The turtles cost $7US per head to get in to see. They were all very sad. Huge buggers but very sad. There are about 100 bored and badly kept turtles here. We went for a swim in crystal clear water of the sea on a beach that was absolutely magnificent.

I know they are used to that and probably their organisms too, just for me it is sad that all the rest of the world can have clean water and possibility to drink in casual way from the cup in the room but not outside, and here, these kids, these people have to do it in the way like this. Of course they don't know yet how the things are going ...

... I got to watch it as it dove down, and a few others had joined it. I will never forget that image through my goggles. It was amazing. Ailidh and Sophie saw dolphins too, and Saj broke the fricken ladder on the boat cuz he has the worst luck in the world. All in all, we were exhausted, but definitely high on adrenaline from the experience. All before 9 am. Kasim met us back on shore and took us to our hotel to freshen up and have breakfast, and the dropped us off at the ...
