Last Saturday, we hiked up a mountain only to find a crater at the top! Mount Longonot is a "stratovolcano located southeast of Lake Naivasha in the Great Rift Valley of Kenya, Africa" (wikipedia). Though not a very long hike up to the top, I found it a little challenging considering the dust and heat. But a great hike it was....and with spectacular views!
Here are some pictures:

And then today.......
we went to the "Giraffe Center," only five minutes from the compound in Karen.
Friends of the giraffes (he was a shy one).
Two weeks of classes have been completed in Karen and in Nairobi, but now it's time to switch gears again. Tomorrow I leave for Tanzania for a week! We will be in Arusha camping out with the Hadza, a hunter-gatherer community in north-central Tanzania. I am excited, to say the least!
Updates to come in a week or so.
I hope all is well for you wherever you are in the States or internationally!
