Headed to Lake Nakuru

The days here are short, and getting shorter.  I'm off to Lake Nakuru, here in Kenya, on another 5-day expedition.  This means that my posting shall be on hiatus for the next little bit, but I'll be happy to begin my posting again soon!  My adventures are growing, and while I'm still getting settled into life here in Kenya, funny things are happening all the time.

What I want to share with you now, however, is this: Every morning I wake up, walk outside, and am presented to the snowy peak of Kilimanjaro in the pale-pink morning light.

With a view like this... well, to be quite honest, just being in Kenya, and living this life, is enough to get me up and out of bed early without fuss.  Mornings here start before sunrise, and I'm never upset for it.  I enjoy every breath I take in East Africa, because I know they're in limited supply.  According to a loving resource, I have about 47 days left in my journey to the African wild.  That's 47 days left to explore this wonderful place, study the environment and its policies, only to walk away from it in May.  I've barely begun my time in Kenya, and I have over a month left here, and already I'm yearning to return.

  1. I am so enjoying being in East Africa with you! I now have 2 great-nieces on adventure in different parts of the world. Your cousin Jessica is in Belize doing research on cats, Jag's I believe.
