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, …

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 …

... for conservation efforts around the world. Her house is beautifully built along the lake and after learning about the couples work we enjoyed tea and biscuits! In the morning a few of us enjoyed learning about looming from a local man who built his own loom while others went on a nature walk. Our group was lucky enough to go back to the beautiful Kembu camp outside Nakuru. Others went on a game drive in Lake Nakuru while a few of us decided to stay back and visit a local women's ...

... children. Finally, we visited Nanyuki Mall, their Walmart. Why? Beats me!

Obviously, the question of poverty is ever present when you visit Africa although, given our routing through rather high-end resorts in rural areas, we did not encounter the begging children you find in many third world countries. I don't know if traveling through the towns and cities would have had a different feel. And I've heard that India ...

... do anything for me! Literally the most thoughtful person I know.

We relaxed, had dinner at Blue Line; where I was again reunited with Nyokabi (the owner of blueline). Shes such a funny lady, last year when I said I would be definitely returning she had said to make sure I rang her. On arrival she hit me, she said "why didn't you ring, naughty boy!" hahah, she is great! After getting a room we had a good chat about her ...

    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!
