Sunday fun day ! (:

Today we got up at 5:00…earliest we’ve been up all week but in the end so worth it! We got in the buses on our way to Lake Nakuru National Park as the sun was coming up over the mountains. It was a very beautiful scenic sight.
            As we waited for our entrance tickets, little monkeys acted as our entertainment for the time passing. These outgoing, sneaky little fellows snuck into a van that was parked next to us through the cracked windows. 1..2...3 monkeys followed. It was hilarious to watch the owner come back and shoo them away.
            We made our way into the park and went for a safari trip all around the Lake. We were surprised by the amount of wildlife and animals that we got to see. From all different kinds of birds to hippos, giraffes, zebras and we even saw a lion taking a nap underneath a shady tree. The distance between the animals and us was incredibly close.
            Making our way up to the top of a cliff, we got an amazing view of the varying terrain from up above. On our way down, we visited a waterfall and found a skull of some kind of large animal.
            Although the experience of the safari itself was incredible, what made it even more special was being able to share this beautiful visit with all of the members from our team, local as well as international. We shared laughs, pictures, but most importantly memories that will last forever.
            After our Safari we got to go to a unique club to have lunch with the whole team including many more Kenyan volunteers that weren’t able to join us on the Safari. They sang to us and shared with us some Kenyan hobbies that they have. In return we shared things about ourselves and things we like to do in our spare time.
            All in all today was an awesome experience that we will always remember.
