Today has been really exciting; first thing we did today was dance with maasai warriors! They ‘dressed’ us up in their jewelry and their wraps, it was pretty cool, I use the term dance very lightly because really what they do is jump extremely HIGH! After that we went to the cutest elephant orphanage! It was just too adorable, elephants are so sneaky and cheeky and pretty stubborn! And their skin is quite HARD! It has to be I guess to protect all that softness on the inside, the girls and I are thinking of adopting one. They’re just too cute! Side bar my sunglasses broke as we entered the elephant park; so if you see me walking around with broken glasses you know why! SUCKS! We did a cute lil birthday video for our girl lamide she’s back home in Nigeria and we aren’t there to celebrate with her, its such a cute video she’s going to love it! We also went to the giraffe park today and got to feed those naughty giraffes, Daisy likes to front, she will stay if you’re feeding her otherwise she’s not interested! LOL whereas betty will let you touch her and feed and just play with her, its crazy that even with their long necks and unique features they’re still so human like, Nature is amazing I tell you! So my cousin hooked us up with the kiza owner and tonight he wants to host us at his club here in Kenya, I hear they’re putting on the same table as Trey Songz was on last week, LOL I hope he doesn’t expect us to spend try songz money tho! LOL let you know tomoz, see ya!
I had a very good feeling about today when I woke up. And yes, it has everything to do with the fact that we’re going to see baby elephants and feed giraffes today. On our way to the David Sherlock Wildlife Trust, we saw some Maasai people by the National Park, and we stopped them for a quick dance. Lol, that sounds like an ambush. Well, it was fun! I feel like I’ve found my real tribe. I already look like them, no? So all I need to do now is master the dance and jump as high as they do. The elephants were so cute to watch, groping their huge bottles of milk with their trunks. The girls and I are definitely adopting one soon. Most likely Roi. And then the Giraffes… such slimy tongues! Watching the animals today made me appreciate God for his creations even more. Oh yes, THE TRAFFIC IN THIS CITY IS INSANE! WHATTT?! And I thought Lagos had it bad. We’re going to the club tonight. So I should probably start getting dressed. Peace and love. Xx
It’s my best friend’s birthday and so I stayed up till 2:00 am (12:00 am in Lagos) to skype with her, I miss her so much. Had to be up bright and early for the day we have planned. First stop, The Maasai! I’ve dreamt about this day for a very a long time and finally today the girls and I clad the traditional Maasai attire and danced and jumped and danced some more. Spent the rest of the afternoon at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and spent some quality time with the cutest baby elephants and then the giraffe center where we met and fed Daisy and Betty (for the record, those are giraffes by the way) and they sure do love to eat. Tried my hand in acting today and let’s just say its something I might looks into, I have a new found respects for actors though, it’s not easy. We got stuck in the worst traffic on our way back to the hotel, I can’t believe I’m saying this but I miss Lagos traffic. Eventually, we had to walk to the hotel and start getting ready to head to Kiza. Taje’s cousin Bidemi hooked us up and we are being hosted, I hope there will be food. Leaving Kenya tomorrow so I hope we can leave early enough so a sister can rest in this life.
What an awesome day this is!!! Even though I am still very much sleep deprived I am presently having a really good day! So first things first brush your teeth, shower, get dressed…you know the drill. We then proceed to the elephant orphanage but we have to do a quick detour to dance with the masaai. In one word- AWESOME! These guys are so skinny and like kangaroos they jump almost to the heavens. Apparently these Masaai guys are very capable men and are allowed to marry as many wives as they want…*now backing away slowly*. We get to the elephant orphanage and boy! are those things cute! These animals are literally ones that don’t have parents or got injured or separated from their herd and its amazing what these people do for them. Their care takers know all of them by name even though they all look and feel the same. They feed them, nurse them when they are sick, pretty much treat them like babies…its so beautiful to watch. The girls and I are so moved that we literally want to adopt one of them…ROI. Definitely still working on that. We then went to meet up with our homies in Kenya- Betty, Daisy and Gabby I mean since we are in town we might as well pop in and say whats up no? Always so hungry those girls, we had to feed them and they were super delighted with their long ass necks…love you girls! Before I go on I think I should mention that them three are giraffes…yeah nice lovable and magnificent giraffes well apart from Betty who is so stuck up and doesn’t like to be touched *rolling my eyes*. Now what did we do next? oh yes so seyitan got a call to come in for an audition for a new movie…pretty cool huh? Well we were there for moral support and of course she nailed ittt…woohoo! Yaya mall was next, rather disappointing if you ask me but even worse is the traffic to get back to the hotel! Its amazing that people complain when they come to Lagos cus the traffic here is on a whooole other level. We ended up walking to the hotel at some point and the night got abit interesting afterwards. We went over to a place called KIza…nice club with so many amazing characters. The people here are fine sha!! Its just awesome to watch especially their reaction to Nigerian music…amazing! That is done we get an uber and head to the hotel. I am in bed now and somehow I can’t shake the feeling that I should be doing more…with my life that is…I don’t know…its been taunting me day and night…and you know how it is before bed, the day just rushes in. *sigh* I’ll figure this out probably tomorrow. Right now its sleep time! Talk to you tomorrow in Tanzania!!…kisses
