Nimechoka (I Am Sleepy)

Rothschild Giraffes, One of Most Endangered
Giraffe Species
It’s our first evening back from our expedition in Lake Nakuru National Park, and after over 10 hours of traveling across Kenya via Land Cruiser, crammed in with 8 other people with bulging book-bags and camera-bags, I’m very tired, so I’m going to go ahead and post a few pictures, clear up a couple things, and crawl beneath my mosquito net to dream of lions roaring.

   So I know that for a few days my blog disappeared.  Unfortunately, my email account was temporarily hacked and my blog placed on hiatus by Google so as to protect my information.  Luckily, everything is reset and safe, and my blog was just fine.  A few awkward emails were sent out with a virus by the perpetrator, but everyone seems to have been fine.
   Also, I promise I’ll post more about my expedition, because a lot of brilliantly amazing things happened.  We saw many rare animals, had some awkward run-ins with baboons in the campsite, and I finished my search to see the Big 5 and Little 5.
   Big Five: lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, buffalo.
   Little Five: ant lion, leopard tortoise, rhinoceros beetle, elephant shrew, and buffalo weaver.
