september2013 travel blog


Leisurely start today as we prepared to leave the Mara. The lions were on the roadside as we left...so fitting. One male, Handar and 2 ladies. Further in the distance we saw others running and playing. Our plane was late, so we went to the hippo pond..how neat is that? It is a great way to pass the time. I had hoped to record the grsnarting song of the hippos but they weren't at camp this morning and the ones at the pond were playing shy.

Flew to Nairobi and spent some time at the Utandari craft area and then stayed at the hotel. We were informed of the siege at the Westland Mall here in Nairobi and were sad to hear of the loss..37 dead and over 200 injured. We were made aware of it and encouraged to stay at the hotel. Our hotel has security checks every time you enter and guards by the door.

Then we packed and went to bed as we were leaving at 5:00am.
