    ... when it opened for 11am. We were told to make our way over to a blanket which was hanging, which we did. We waited a while and before long tiny baby elephants began running over towards us.

    ... colorful earrings. The landscape we passed was beautiful. From pure African plains through rocky mountainsides and the African savannah. Didn't spot any big mammals though. Only couple of ostriches, baboons, camels and birds! At 6:17 pm I crossed the equator! For the first time in my life I was actually driving into the Southern Hemisphere.

    Once we arrived, I noticed there were many people waiting outside, and one kid

    music in his head, full on Michael Jackson mode, I wondered about ...

    ... took about a half hour and since it was dark it was difficult to see most of the city. I was however, able to see some of the larger buildings in Nairobi, while we drove I was impressed to see the unique architecture.
