Here & There 2

Well, it is Monday afternoon and I have just had a chance to type and upload five posts from the kids (Tara Porter, Elizabeth Vennari, Roman DiPasquale, Simon Wu, Baily Troyer).  The post are fun, interesting, and certainly give you an insight into their interpretations of their experiences.

This morning we woke up at 5:00 AM to go out on our 1st safari.  It was absolutely amazing and unlike anything I have every experienced.  We saw a lion pride in the middle of a hunt.  An impatient young lion charged a bit too early and lost the family’s meal.  I absolutely recognized the look the dad lion gave the teenager.  I have given that same look myself.  We also had giraffes cross the road directly in front of us.  Both tripped just a bit.  We also saw a rhino family hanging out within 10 feet of our vehicle.  It was absolutely amazing!  I am sure some of the kids will be writing about this soon.  We leave for our next safari in less than an hour!  I am so excited!

I will post a few photos here of some the stuff that has been mentioned.

    Not only are you relating to people of a different culture, but also the wildlife! I expect everyone will come back a bit changed from all that you are seeing (and eating!!!). Thanks for the photos. It appears the teenager appetite is being satisfied and everyone looks so happy and smiley!
