The lights went out in Nairobi!
But we survived.
Though the power outages or rolling blackouts are not as bad as I thought they would be in East Africa, they do happen sometimes. Follow along with us for a day in the life when the power goes out here in East Africa. Jem really wanted to eat cookies for dinner and I wanted a hamburger… watch what happens! HAHA

The strangest, biggest bird I have ever seen!
In The Great Rift Valley!
We took a day trip to Lake Naivasha north of Nairobi for a BBQ. I saw the Great Rift Valley for the first time in my life and it is STUNNING! Words and pictures can not describe my awe. It is the most beautiful stretch of land I have seen in my life so far and it seems to go on forever! Soulmate and I saw this huge, strange, weird, ugly looking bird and it fascinated me. I came to find out it’s called a Marabou Stork. It has an incredible wingspan of 12 feet which ranks the species as having the largest wing-spread of any living bird. The WHOOOSH sound is incredible to hear in person.
