– If nothing just watch from 0:55 –We were extremely lucky on this safari. Our guide Hilary was a well educated guy from the Mweka Wildlife College and was so passionate about wildlife, that he didn’t just want to show us the Serengeti, he was there for himself as well – he was just as eager as we were to take photos whenever we saw something exciting. Most importantly, he had no ambition to make extra money by saving gas, he took us as far away as he possibly could. We found these elephants at such a time: far away from everyone we were the only ones.

The greatest thing however, is that every day there is a new musical theme: there is reggae day, pop day, oldies day, party/dance day (friday), and so on… and the funny thing is, that traffic is so slow in Kenya that the driver has time to do proper DJ’ing while driving.
Outside the engineering department of KCMC today. At first I thought they were singing as part of a celebration; it was a national holiday. Later on I realized that they were singing for somebody’s funeral and this place was just outside the mortuary.
