... just sticks to the feet. All the roads are dirt. I heard the bus driver had to use a knife to cut the mud off a student's school shoes before she got on the st Jude's school bus. Monday was spent at the school in classrooms as our flight out had been changed. It was Olivas birthday today so we got to see her before we left.

We also were able to see two rhinos grazing off in the distance, quite a rare find considering how near extinction the black rhino is. Everywhere we looked we saw different, new animals. The crater itself was incredibly gorgeous, a vast bright green landscape with rolling hills surrounded by forested mountains on all sides.
