Soaking in Kenya

On Sunday, we decided to explore some Kenyan culture. We started at the Giraffe Center which is working to conserve the endangered Rothschild giraffes and educate youth about conservation in Kenya. The giraffe we visited with was named Daisy who was quite hungry. We learned that giraffes eat 75 pounds of food a day. At the center they also had a turtle enclosure and warthogs -- who are apparently uninvited but continue to burrow under the fence to have their babies.

After that, we headed to the Bomas of Kenya for a cultural dance, music and acrobatic show. It was hard to stay in your seat! (Check out some of the action below.) We ended our day with dinner at the Sarova Stanley Hotel and I had the fish in chips, served in a giant serving chandelier (not sure what else to call it). It was delicious and the waiter was excited to present the dish to me (those arms with things in them were attached to the plate you can see behind it).
