Day 4 safari - Serengeti --> Ngorongoro

A travel blog entry by alicegiles

... on a David Attenborough documentary, seeing it for real life was an unforgettable experience for sure. We also got to see on a few occasions lions cubs all huddled together on a rock, without their mum, knowing she wouldn't be too far but probably hunting. On another occasion there was a Lion and a lioness lying down in the long grass. They then put on a show for us by mating right in front of us. If you waited another 7 minutes you'd get the show ...

Day Forty Eight

A travel blog entry by embelina

A couple of times recently, Emilie's said to me 'I can't believe you're going home in x weeks/days!' - the first time she said this was a couple of days age when it was a week and a half until I go, and I got so excited, it was as if it was a surprise to me. But just hearing somebody say it was so strange, as it suddenly didn't sound that far away.

Quite a few of them are with Emilie and I by now, including a couple of the other... adults? Feels weird that we're the adults. A few of the children have found a massive patch of washed up seaweed - Emilie and I walk over to see what they're doing. They're finding all ...

Day Twenty Nine

... this.
I use Manuella's laptop to e-mail parents with yet another plan of action.

After dinner, Emma and I watch Shutter Island in her room, and she kindly lets me use her laptop to check my e-mail again. There's one from Dad saying he hadn't managed to get the funds transferred to Will's account yet but he'll keep trying. We're supposed to be getting it out tomorrow. I go to find Will, who's smoking downstairs with Elayah and someone else - we agree that ...
