      ... giraffe. This experience is so unique school groups would love this, it would be such a great adventure.

      Soon we were starving so the tour guides took us back to the main entrance where we were served lunch sitting on beautiful wooden logs and tables with the most food I have ever seen! The one thing I loved more than anything was that there were deer that actually walked around ...

      ... plants that they use. We were a bit concerned to be walking around in lion country but the Masai assured us that they had a knife and a throwing stick. The wLk ended up in the Masai village were there was the high jumping dancing for the men (Ron joined in) and some less active dancing for the women. The Masai protect their herds from lions every night. Our lodge is on the bend of a river and you can watch hippos and a crocodile from the ...

My group always finishes last. She told me today that I am really good at teaching the kids. She also said that I have ...

      ... When we walked in the embalming room, every one of us took about 5 steps in and went running out. The room REEKED of Formalin (used for embalming) and all our eyes began burning and tearing. Apparently James had just finished embalming one of the alcohol patients from the #killerdrink incident and the smell was so strong IT felt deadly. I certainly hope he wears a mask to do that.

      Today I'm wondering about how James and the doctors ...

      ... driver needed to pay for Lake Nakuru tomorrow so we made a stop. The Maasi were in the parking lot! We got a chance to jump and sing and dance and sing with them and for me it was an out of body experience. When I came to Kenya in 2001 we spent a majority of our time with the Maasi. I was so happy that I could connect with them again even if it was for that moment. Some of the group members were not comfortable and the Maasi ...
