Monkey business – Animal Orphanage.
Stunning. One of 32 lions brought to the Animal Orphanage for care following abandonment or inability to survive in the wild.
No foolin’ around with this guy.
Touring traditional hut styles from Northern Kenya at BOMAS Cultural Center, Nairobi.
I JUST LOVE THIS. YES.
BOMAS Cultural Center; one of 12 traditional Kenyan-style dances performed.
At Nairobi National Museum – the highlights? Probably the oldest skull & human remains findings in the world (!) and the exhibit on Kenyan History.
Loved this architecture, heading into the city centre.
Walking near the bridge, close to the University of Nairobi.
Above the bridge; downtown.
Coffee & Newspapers. Because that’s a thing. And I love that! Nairobi Java Coffee – one of 37 city locations. Hello, franchise.
AMAZING Kenyan food at the Highlands Restaurant; Githeri (beans and maize), Kienyeji (mashed potatoes with peas/maize and pumpkin leaves), and Sukuma Wiki (collared greens).
The retrieval room at the National Archives; because my bestie is an archivist.
TENNESSEE SHOUT-OUT HERE. Hello fish and chips…from the South? Hm.
Keep Nairobi Fresh. Please.
Love the ‘matatu’ designs (on the buses). Especially this one.
ALL THE SCHOOL FIELD TRIPS. Love the uniforms & adventures. At the Elephant Sanctuary.
Touched this bad boy.
With of 29 current elephants. They are kept until age 3 – then reintroduced into the wild. At the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage.
The watering hole. The elephants are publicly viewed for only ONE hour per day (from 11 -12) so they gotta look fresh.
Youth for Christ – Kenya.
Upon visiting….why not bake bread? I mean, really…? They got an oven, ingredients, and a whole lot of motivation.
The women with all of the goods they produce at the Women’s Rehab Center. These are all skills they have acquired at the women’s life rehabilitation center. Let me know if you are interested in any – I can direct you to the right person!
