Zebra on the Mara

Ran about three days worth of transects today, all thanks to good friends who worked long and hard to help me, and the best part is that they offered! I couldn’t ask to be in the company of better people. A couple of these guys have really wedged themselves in my heart, which if you know anything about me is truly difficult if you walk on two legs. Many people thought I never actually came back to the U.S. from my first trip to Kenya, so I can tell you that this second time leaving Kenya is going to be infinitely harder for me. I just hope I can hold on in the U.S. long enough to finish school, so I can come home again (to Kenya).
