Just received an email from my daughter Julia. She is spending the semester in Kenya. They just got back to Karen after climbing Mt. Longonot. It's an extinct volcano that is part of the Rift Valley. Julia walked all around the crater. On the walk back down the Mt. their driver Njuo had to guide the students past a troop of baboons. A couple picts of the Mt. I found on the internet.

Julia is having a great time in spite of having to spend last Sat. night in the Nairob i hospital. The results of her rural homestay. She loved the experience of the rural homestay however.
