Nairobi is a crazy-busy city of about 3 million people. Yet only a few miles from the city center is the Nairobi National Park. It's possible to see giraffe, gazelle, hippos, cheetahs - and more - all roaming out in the wild. (The park is more than 12 miles long.)
Our only complaint about it was that the price of admission went up drastically, even during our latest two years there. In the 90s, we could have gone for a simple Sunday after-church picnic. Not these days. (Well, these days, that would necessitate two international flights.)
By the way, that's Heather's head. And that was on a Sunday.
