    ... his territory and tell the rousing wildlife that the king was awake. Yet again a fantastic photo opportunity to add to the more than 4000 + photos that Eoin and Shirley have collectively taken.

    Back at the camp, it was time for packing and getting ready for our transit to Nairobi airport. As we drove along the track to the exit gates from the park, zebra, wildebeest, baboons, impala, hippos and a tortoise came to bid us farewell.

    ... locals helped us try get the car out. 15 minutes later we were back on the road again! Then we got stuck in huge traffic. We thought it was definitely a sign that Anne shouldn't be leaving! In the end we got to the airport on time, thank goodness. We weren't allowed into the airport so we said our goodbyes to Anne.

And so, if this is only day one, I can't wait to see what is in store for me in my next 2 weeks in Kijabe. One of the nurses thinks that 'baby catching' is definitely on the cards, oh ...

    ... has propagated even more rape cases of fathers, uncles, and other men having sex with their daughters and nieces. How ****** up is that?! If the father hasn't raped his daughter, there is still a good chance that he has at least cheated on his wife, abused her, or best scenario (in my mind) has just left her.
