Lessons in Scatology
Today we boarded jeeps and left for the great rift lakes, another important setting for the books and movies we we studied before leaving.
At Lake Navashi we took a boat ride to view the birds and hippos. On the way to the boats we walked through fields of poop, the guide explained each pile and the animal that deposited it.
Our hotel is on Lake Elementeita The rooms are unbelievable, They look like they were decorated by Karen Blixen. The individual tents are set in the middle of a game preserve, the grounds are surrounded by an electric fence. Tonight I sat on the deck at the reception area, sipped tea, watched the water back graze and thought about what a lucky woman I am.
