kenyeaah 2

After Nairobi, we were whisked away to the Maasai Mara National Reserve to hunt and kill some of those rotten animals. Just kidding. Poaching is so frowned upon here (in fact, illegal), so it's a good thing I didn't have my arrows or club (both of which are items confiscated at the airport should you coincidentally have either).

We stayed at the Mara Safari camp, a luxury 50-cabin resort where hippos chilled in my front yard in the Mara river and a baboon chaser made his rounds every night to keep us safe.

Our first game drive was no less than phenomenal, with moments so inspiring they could not be captured by camera. But I took photos anyway:

giraffes make me happy


elephants going .4 mph

Later, we were taken to a Maasai village. This tribe is one of the most popular in the world. Their 5-foot homes are made of cow dung, and they have like, no discos or gameboys. What? Though poverty stricken by western standards, they are incredibly happy by theirs.

champagne bush breakfast anyone? uh, anyone??

more pics to follow...
