Nairobi, May 29, 2006

After a restful sleep, today's adventure began when we met the rest of our group of 15. After briefing us, Daniel took us on an adventure like no other - to kiss a giraffe up close, to learn about tea and have a delicious lunch, and to step back into the past and tour Karen Blixen's home. After freshening up, we were wisked away to Felix and Jane Pinto's house for a wonderful supper and incredible hospitality.
