Hi everyone sorry I have not written in so long I was busy with stuff I needed to do and plus, I got to go to Kenya for 2 weeks and it was fun and even more amazing than you can imagine. We first went to a place called Samburu which was a in a tropical sort of place which had monkeys and a few antelope called Kudu that came around every once and a while. I kept a journal so I wouldn't forget about everything. All the animals are:

  • Wildebeast all over in the Masai Mara because of the great migration
  • Zebras same thing as the wildebeast
  • Giraffes
  • baboons
  • Rhinos
  • Chimps
  • Elands
  • Topis
  • Elephants
  • buffalo
  • monkeys
  • dik diks
  • impalas
  • thomsan's gazelles
  • grants gazelles
  • hippos
  • crocodiles
  • vultures
  • eagles
  • secretary bird
  • ostriches
  • cheetahs
  • lions
  • hyenas
  • mongoose
  • jackals
  • hartebeast
  • oryx
  • maribou
  • warthogs
  • storks
  • spoon bills
  • and much more
and many birds that were beautiful in color and that we saw many times so we could appreciate how pretty they were.

 This is Wafula--does he look familiar? I was given an African tribal name by a Kenyan man I met. It means Rainy Season which is a good time for Africa. It is a time when everything grows and animals are nourished.

This is only the intro to everything. My next blog entry will be about the first days in Samburu National Reserve.

What no possums?!!!!!! Maybe they were hibernating.

I love your warrior outfit! I look forward to reading more about the exciting time you had in Kenya and to look at gobs of photos.

so happy you're all home safely and with all of your arms and legs. I hear those African possums like smelly feet.

Thanks everyone for commenting, my friends have no idea what it would be like because they just can't understand why it is so important.
Grazie a tutti per i commenti, i miei amici non hanno idea di com'era perche' non capiscono perche' e' cosi' importante
