A weekend break


We had a great weekend traveling to Nakuru to visit friends from college Travis and Lydia Klingforth who have been missionaries to the urban poor for the past 6 years.  Pictured is Lake Nakuru, known for its amazing flamingo covered shores.

The girls were excited to see pink birds as well as many baboons, monkeys, zebra, rhino, buffalo and enjoyed doing so from our car which barely made it around the lake because of all the rain.

As a break during the ride we stopped and fed ostriches. These have to be about the ugliest things created and I'm amazed people want them as pets. 
After feeding the birds we took a horse ride down to Lake Elementitia. Meredith decided that horses are a bit scary but okay when old and slow. Amelia just wants a horse and so we have to remind her, "You don't get everything you want in life," but at least the 30 minute ride we paid ten dollars for actually lasted 90 minutes!
