Our last day in Oloosiyoi, we said a sad goodbye to our Free the Children family, who had been so awesome and hospitable our entire stay. Flo, Wilson, Finn, Rudi, "Maji Moto," Andrew, Maxwell, William and everyone else - we had made some new friends and we weren't ready to leave them yet.
We took a group photo and in order to get Paul in, we had to use the Land Rover as a tripod. It did the job.
En route to the Fairmont - if this looks bad, you should have seen the river we tried to cross. Three days earlier it was low enough for us to cross on the raised cement driveway, but heavy rains had almost flooded the river and we were unsure that we'd be safe going across.
Upon a sweaty and dirty arrival at the Fairmont, we were greeted with cold towels and mango juice.
And then an hour later, we were on our first safari!
The weather changed pretty quickly - here is a rainstorm off in the distance.

Ashley in the other car. It was never decided which one was Car 1 and which one was Car 2 but we kept to the same group and driver for our stay there. Our driver's name was Keefer.
