      This lodge provided perhaps our top experience in terms of accommodations during this tour. The watering hole just across from the tents, and the abundant wildlife, make it an exciting place to stay. Many of us wondered why go out on safari at all? Just let the animals come to us, as we sit and enjoy coffee and drinks at the bar. Our favorite moment was the parade of 16 elephants of all ages, followed closely by the sight of tall giraffe spreading their front legs far enough (the splits) in order to get their long necks down low enough to take a drink!

      Owen woke me at 4:30 am. It was quite a noisy night--baboons barking at about 3:30 and something unidentified making a lot of noise very near our tent at 4:00. Owen and I left shortly before 6:00 am to watch the sunrise over the waterhole on a crisp and clear morning. Giraffe, Ibis, cranes and the ever present waterbuck were at the watering hole, …

      Left the Mountain Lodge at 9:00 am. We stopped at the equator where the Coriolis effect was demonstrated with a bucket, a home-made funnel and a match stuck. Water drained with a clockwise motion in the Northern hemisphere, and a counter clockwise motion in the Southern. You only had to move about 40 feet to see the effect. Directly in the equator …

      ... of the Kenyan wildlife. I am trying to see if the coriolis effect indeed changes depending which side of the equator you are on. The video shows north of the equator, anticlockwise rotation. On Tuesday I will try it south of the equator and see what ...

      ... it makes them brave. The young men are warriors that stay up during the night protecting the village from wild animals. They aren't allowed to eat or sleep with their families but their moms still send food. Some of the children go to boarding school but almost always return to the village. Unbelievable poverty. We left Sumburu (after coming across another leopard!)for Sweetwaters tented camp - this is glam camping ...

      ... and isolated villages. Thinking too much is never good, it makes you realise a lot more. Driving past villages it suddenly dawned on me that for so many kids, what aspirations and goals do they have? Not having money or a good education, is there any chance that they will leave their village? Surviving every day is ridiculously hard here. Problems after problems arise, with hardly any health care nor ways to eliminate the ...
