First day - meeting the team and DOT

Busy schedule today. We started with meeting each other over breakfast. There is an extra room we can use for breakfast and business meetings during our stay here. It's at the first floor of "my" D-block. I'm on the top floor (5th) so lots of stairs each day to climb.

After breakfast, we got into our bus and drove to the Elephant Orphanage. The baby elephants get milk and they play around a bit while the helpers spray them with sand or water. One of the main guys is telling us all about each of the elephants, where they were found, what their  names are, and what will happen with them once they are big enough to start living in the wild. It takes about 5 to 10 years to get the babies adopted / accepted by the wild groups living in Tsavo. During this time, they are being introduced to the groups and one day, they will simply not return.



Next was a nature walk in the Nairobi National Park. Seeing our first rhino, cheetah, and other animals while our guide told us a lot about the animals and about Kenya. At the end of the walk, we could feed the little giraph. She was very sweet and soft.
 

Time was running out... and we wanted to do some practical shopping to get fruit, cookies, and drinks. So we left and went to the shopping mall.

And tonight we had dinner together at a very nice hotel. 

So far, so good! What a great country!
