Successful Serengeti Safari! Now in Musoma

Asante sana. Thank you to everyone for your thoughts and prayers as we climbed Kilimanjaro. We all have many tales to tell.

For now, I want to report that we had a very successful safari through the Serengeti yesterday (Monday) and today (Tuesday). A highlight was the dawn game drive today (6-9AM), where we saw many lions and a beautiful leopard resting in a tree.

We are now safely in Musoma (on Lake Victoria). We will present a facsimile check tomorrow at the Nyegina School for $26,000 as a down payment for the library and community resource center. We are excited to tour the school, see the new dormitory filled with girls, and meet with the UMABU board and the Nyegina Seconday School board.

The amount of ibuprofen consumed is diminishing each day (not so true for the imodium…). We are all still tired and while it is not even 9pm here, most everyone is already in bed!

Thanks again for all of your support. If I have a chance tomorrow, I will add some pictures to the blog for everyone!
