We lost a few this morning - some to the hardship of the road yesterday and some to a bad reaction to the malarone (malaria pills) - so only 12 headed back out on those roads to see what we could see. Baboons and black-faced velvet monkeys, some great birds, another herd of wildebeest and then nothing, nothing, an hour of just driving seeing massive stone formations dropped ...
... We had so many times that we thought they'd go over but they just never did. Finally after about an hour, we decided to give up and go try to see some other stuff. 15 minutes later, Kareem got the call that they had gone into the water and crossed. UGH! Oh well.

viewpoint of the Serengeti and how big it really is.
Wow, how amazing was the Ngorongoro
crater, a huge expanse with a lake full of pink dots, which on closer
viewing was a mass of flamingo's. The landscape was a flat plain

to the crater was steep ...
