We are at the National Park but it is already 1.30pm.
Actually it is time for lunch and to be honest me and Yianni feel a bit hungry.

Patrick,  - the owner of the house we stay at, is spending the day with us today. He suggests that we visit the park, .....have a 4 hour ride, (Safari) and afterwards have lunch late in the afternoon.
When I saw the price of the trip in the gardens I had second thoughts.
This would cost us a lot, and since we have visited so many parks, been to more than 5 Safaries in South Africa some years ago,  I thought that we could skip all this and spend some of this money for our lunch instead, thus saving some cash and buy more things for the orphans at Kitengela.

I try to spend my money sensibly and all the money we have brought is for the poor.
I truly mean it.
In the meantime, I can do without food, but I badly need an internet card for my laptop to keep in touch with my work, family and friends.

So, we come to the Restaurant and buy ourselves some lunch.  It is a relaxing day today, not much dust or smog.  We badly needed this change, and in the meantime Patrick suggests different alternatives, visiting places that won't cost us much.

Early in the afternoon we drive back home.....There is NO WATER for the 5th day today.
It is terrible!  We have a bath with warm water in a bucket and a plastic bowl!

Luckily the girls who cook have saved water in huge bottles and buckets, but indeed it is a nightmare when the time comes for them to cook for 10 people each day and then wash all these dishes.
An unpleasant experience, but before coming here I knew that I might face such problems.
I had in mind worse situations, so we have to cope with it.

We have already missed our  house, children, grand children, and friends back home.
