Final Weekend in Nairobi

After almost 2 years in Kenya our time here has come to an end. We tried to do some fun and practical things to mark our last weekend.

Friday night was a going away happy hour with Rhonda's work mates.

It was blast - filled with lots of good company and dancing.

Yesterday we paid a last visit to the Elephant Orphanage - my favorite part is seeing them run from the woods into the feeding area. It is quite a sight to see them charge down the hill - one right after the other.

Afterwards we checked out restaurant in Karen we had not been to before - Purdy Arms. We ended up spending a good portion of the afternoon there since they had lots of entertainment for the kids - including bouncing castles and even make-your-own pizza.

For the grown-ups there was a market for Rhonda and I tried out archery for the first time since summer camp in the 80's, kind of random but fun.

Next stop was a place in Nairobi National Park we had not visited before - the Animal Orphanage. I was ready to head home but Matthew was determined to see cheetahs one last time. It did not disappoint as there was at least 6 cheetahs and a multitude of lions and hyenas and even a leopard.

 Today (Sunday) we spent at a fair, doing some packing, delivering stuff to people who bought household items from us, and visiting some friends for dinner. A great way to end our time in Kenya!

Next stop Europe for a couple of weeks and then back to Nyack...
