We survived the 20 hours of flight to Kenya, and truth be told, it wasn't as bad as we anticipated, thanks to sleeping pills. We enjoyed four hours of sleep at the hotel last night before having to wake up at 6:30 for breakfast because our safari guide is picking us up at 8. From the hotel, we will travel to a smaller airport and fly on a tiny plane, a la Denis Finch Hatton, to the Porini Mara Camp. We'll spend three internetless days there, then come back to Nairobi for one day. We really haven't rested well for the last 72 hours, so we are THRILLED to go to a camp where someone else will be taking care of everything and our only job will be relaxing and looking for animals! Now, back to our full English breakfasts...there are still lasting effects of colonialism, but I have to say, they taste delicious.
