Kenya#1: Rosslyn Academy & Giraffe Center

We had such a great time in Kenya with the Minors. This is the first of 3 (or 4) posts about our trip. We got a tour of Rosslyn Academy. It was so fun to see where Sean and Gabe’s classes are, where Wes’ office is, and to see all the beautiful trees and greenery that surround the campus. It was funny because Wes and Dania were talking about how much greener it will become in the coming months, and to us, after coming from the desert, we were blown away by how green it was already…and were soaking it all in!

We went to a Giraffe center where we got to feed the animals, which I was so excited about. Check out our feeding techniques below 😉

Lots of flags.

I love how many swings there are on campus. A playground is not a playground without a swing.

Even the teddy bear was feeding them.

Giraffes have some serious eyelashes!

Love the pose.

    Love the giraffe licks!!! Did you meet up with Robin Shea McGee? She works at Rosslyn (French teacher, I think) and went to Hóughton with Dalia and me.
