Elephants and giraffes

Yesterday I went to the elephant orphanage and giraffe center on the outskirts of Nairobi.  I got to see lots of cute baby elephants and feed a giraffe out of my hand.  I really wish I could ride a giraffe, and I asked if that's possible anywhere, but the guide said giraffes are too sensitive and won't stand being touched, much less ridden. Too bad.  But here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure!

I'm going on another monitoring trip this week to check on some more drought relief projects.  Should be interesting!
