First Day At Cura

Yesterday was our first day out at Cura! We got a tour of the school and met a bunch of the kids. When they went to lunch, they swarmed around us just wanting to shake our hands. It was very cute. :) Today we are going back to the school to work with the kids in the classrooms and to have a field day type event on their field. Can't wait!

Today we went shopping at Nakumatt (basically a mall :D) and had a very relaxing day. We got lunch food for the week and then walked around the place. Tonight, we went to a restaraunt called Carnivore. If you couldn't tell by the name, they serve all sorts of meat. I ate a bite of crocodile...and it was really good! :) Tomorrow is our frst day at Cura! I can't wait to meet the kids!

Today we went to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and saw baby elephants. They were so playful! They would be splashed with water by the keepers and then they would roll around in the dirt and lay on top of eachother. After the elephants, we went to the Giraffe Center. We got to feed giraffes out of our hands and if you put the food up to your mouth the giraffe would kiss you. Which is totally disgusting and cool at the same time, only I don't think I need any more kisses from giraffes after today! I got kissed probably 8 times before we got one in a picture!

But it was definatly worth it!
