These giraffe were leaving a water hole and heading up the side of a steep hill.
There are many different kinds of gazelles...
These funny trees look like they are growing upside down.
In Mombasa we went to where the wood carvers work.  There is a shop where you can buy hundreds of different carvings.  It was amazing to watch these people work.  The designs are in their heads and they carve free-hand.
The most basic tools are used to carve...saws, chisels, knives and sand paper.  Nothing is automated.
This young man carves giraffes from a sold piece of wood.
This is looking out from the Scott's balcony...tough assignment, huh?
Mombasa is a huge seaport  and the fort there is called Fort Jesus.  If you were to look at the fort from the air, it would look like a cross.  This is where the slaves were kept... waiting to be shipped to places unknown.
This is the first time we have seen people having fun in the water since we came to Kenya.  This is the Indian Ocean.
There is a lot of diversity in Mombasa not only in culture but wealth.
