This morning we all woke up excited for the hippo safari we had planned for the day ahead. We left Green Park Village bright and early and met up with our safari guide Alan after a long and bumpy drive. We gathered into a boat and slowly motored down the river, encountering many groups of hippos submerged in the water and even passed by a few who were standing on the shore. We stopped on a small beach around noon and ate a delicious lunch of samosas and avocados provided by Alan before continuing on our safari. The drive home was long and we were all exhausted, but a run in with a herd of giraffe did well to boost our excitement. Overall, today was a fantastic break from teaching, and we will be well-rested and ready to work with the SES students again tomorrow.
