Three fun picnics

Uhuru Park, in downtown Nairobi, is a really great spot for picnics!

Jeremy did a great job making bubbles!

Linet enjoyed a nice relaxing day.

Although I have long loved flying kites, the many trees in this park frustrated me.

Newly acquainted friends, Joanna and George, share some good laughs.

No picnic tables in the park? Hakuna shida - just carry blankets and lesos.

The paddle boats on the pond are such a fun activity!

... and so is the merry-go-round!

I persevered for a long time - and even drew a bit of an audience - but the kite never did get up very high.

Denise shares some laughter.

There's even a small ferris wheel at the park:)
Denise handled this horse really well, and drew some looks from other folks at the park.

New friends, Collins and Jeremy, didn't take long to get acquainted.

Camel ride anyone?

After a great lunch, we went for a game drive.

Another fun picnic at Uhuru Park

I've bumped into Francis twice at Uhuru Park. He's a charming young man from Tanzania and quite the strolling nail stylist!

I watched the fellow on the right catching small fish from the pond. He told me they were to feed his family.
I ended up giving both of the boys a ride in a paddle boat, the first-ever for both of them.
