Kenya Days 10 and 11

Hi everyone 

Lewa is awesome. It is so beautiful, but the sun catches up to you. You do not sweat since it is so high up. On Day 10, we had an awesome game drive. Our driver, Rufus, took us to a part of Lewa that we had never seen. We were able to go off road and got some amazing pictures of rhinos and zebras in the tall grass as the light was changing. The grass turns a golden glow as the sun comes down the horizon. I so love taking pictures in Africa at this time and love how the grass creates a picture of natural beauty. 

Did not have a good start to Day 11. Woke up all night and felt that there was a volcano erupting in my stomach. Spent the night in the bathroom and that morning, I was transported to a local clinic. They immediately took my blood pressure and told me it was very low so they put me on an IV to hydrate.  I was so tired that I slept most of the time. The clinic then tested me for parasites and turned out negative. It as then time for my Covid test. Swabbed both my nose and throat. Need this to enter Uganda. I feel fortunate that this was the first time I had ever been sick in Africa and after eight times, consider it fortunate. I cannot say enough about the clinic. They were very attentive and caring. I was considering cutting my trip early and flying home, but one thought has kept me here. Would I resent myself if I do not see the Gorillas and the answer is a resounding YES.  So we move on to Uganda to see and experience something that is unique and scare in the world.
