On our last full day in the Kenyan countryside,
we set off for our last safari, but soon picked up
on Joel's hesitation and decided to return to the lodge.
Rain that wouldn't cause a moment's hesitation in a city
can turn these dirt roads into rivers. Instead, we
spent a lazy afternoon in our villa, listening to the rain,
playing cards, and reading.
The next morning we learned it was the right call: some
of the other jeeps and vans got stuck in the mud, and some
were still there late into the night.
