Carey has to spend the two
weeks with his Aunt Elaine. Now, Aunt Elaine is a bit wacky so Carey
isn't really sure he wants to go. But this could be good. They
are heading to Kenya and go on a safari. Join Carey and Aunt Elaine
as they rescue a baby elephant, toss a frisbee to a crocodile and help
nab a group of poachers.
"What did I say that sounded
like 'I want to go to Africa with Aunt Elaine?'" But here I am in
Kenya with my aunt, who's too busy with her photo shoot to notice that
I've met a Massai kid my age named Pilot and figured out a way to go with
him and his father on a safari to the Massai Mara Reserve. She did
give me a camera and a journal that might come in handy if I find anything
to write about.
Kenya is amazing! "It's like
National Geographic with smells." I even lost my Frisbee to a crocodile!
Animals are everywhere and the Massai people live with them, and try to
protect them from poachers. I even helped catch one of the poachers
that I first noticed on the plane ride over here. I'm using my journal
to write down what is going on. What started as a lousy two week
trip with Aunt Elaine has become a wild adventure and given me a true friend
in Pilot. Check out everything I saw and drew and learned when you
read Safari Journal by Hudson Talbott. (New
