sooooo many white parents with their "new african babies"!!!!!!
i can't get over it. usually i see about 5ish the entire summer i'm here. This time, i've literally seen about 5-10 every single day. It's so ridiculous. I know that some of them may have good intentions and everything and it may be a completely legitimate adoption, but i can't help but judge everyone of them! there are just too many american's who want to adopt an african baby because it's trendy. also there is a growing problem here, because of the huge rise in the adoption of the babies. the problem is "certified adoption agencies" are stealing babies and children from their mothers or familys, and telling the adopting parents that they are orphans. horrible horrible things, and the amount of children that i've seen with white parents since i've been here makes me worry so much about them and their families.
i forgot to tell you guys too, both my bags came in and were fine, there were plastic wrapped, so i was afriad they were all ripped and broken, but i guess they just wrapped them so they wouldn't get wet. i took a picture of them. i'll try and upload it later, but the internet is so slow here i might not be able too.
i haven't talked to meitamei yet, about him leaving early, but i think i decided that if he does, i'm going to leave that early as well. i'd rather come home like 10 days earlier and have a chance to get to see people before they leave! i mean, it's just 10 days. isn't it worth it? i'll be back in kenya and have plenty of opportunities to have more adventures.
i miss you guys a lot, and want to have some fun times when i get back! my trip seems so short this time. if i'm leaving early, it'll probably be on the 26thish, which means i have less than a month left here. i'm usually here for almost three months, and this time, i'll only be herea little less that two. i think i'll be able to accomplish everything i wanted to though.
i think we're heading to mau narok tomorrow, and then maasai mara the next day after that. i won't have any internet while i'm there, so this could be my last post for a while.
miss/love you guys
