    Last day in Kenya

    A travel blog entry by sweetobsolete on May 25, 2015

    ... because why not? The second round of safari was much better. We still didn't see a ton of animals, but the driver was much more pleasant. We ended up seeing 2 lions, a crocodile, and quite a few rhino, which were all pretty far away, but still neat to see. Alas, I never saw the hyena that I wanted :(
    When we returned to camp, shockingly, there was issues with our money being refunded to us, which was promised earlier. Apparently ...

    ... were very new and some came from many years ago. One man had to ride three busses to get there from far away. Some missed the Passover because rain created traffic jams and some arrived after services (which started late to help) were already over. It is difficult to drive in Nairobi as the growth of cars has outpaced street development.

On the way in, Fr Gary pointed out that most people picture slums as people hanging around doing nothing, but that these are actually very industrious people. But you wouldn't believe that from the looks of things. It's indescribable. Take me at my word - I've been verbose on ...

    ... Truly happy. I felt complete with myself. I knew what I wanted to do with my life and where I wanted to go. I felt happy waiting for the reaction to each of my actions, and not pushing for anything. I felt like I was right where I needed to be. I am looking forward to being home. I hope my dreams become reality. I took a cab to Jaime and Denzil's, had dinner with them, chatted briefly about my Kilimanjaro experience, and then headed back to Laura's flat. I was exhausted from a long ...

    ... who fell down a well, they say an elephant never forgets and I believe that, though I wish it wasn't true. It takes around 10 years to rear a baby elephant here and get them ready to release into the wild, they tend to stay at the orphanage about 5 years and then go to Tsavo National Park where they go through a program introducing them to the wild. Most will end up joining a wild herd but about 15% will make up their own herd with 'friends' from ...
