9/27/09 – 9/28/09: Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya
… It’s the grass that gets hurt.
– African proverb
It all started with the gorillas.
“Zhou, let me take some pictures, you take some time to watch the gorillas.”
“Zhou, I have a better angle, let me take some pictures.”
“Zhou, I’m taller, you can’t see through the bushes, let me take some pictures.”
And it continued yesterday.
“Zhou, take a picture of the lion yawning.”
“Zhou, make sure you get a picture of the sunset.”
“Zhou, make sure you get a picture of the zebra carcass.”
So I finally gave up and let Kevin have the big camera for the afternoon. We’ve been really lucky so far – we’ve seen lions, cheetahs, a leopard, elephants, giraffes and lots and lots of zebras. It is just so cool. And I think it’s only me, but I’m just as fascinated by the sky and the clouds as I am by all the animals. The sky is always changing, and the clouds seem so much closer to the ground and more perfect than they do at home. I don’t know if it’s because they really are prettier or if it’s just because I never used to pay attention to the sky. Either way, it’s just reason one million and one that I’m glad we came to Africa.
