Much to my excitement, our dinner hut was full of monkeys when we came back for lunch! They scarpered as soon as we walked in (unfortunately… as I was in awe!). They were climbing all over the surrounding trees and roofs, and stared at us whilst we ate! It looks like the black-faced vervet monkey (Cercopithecus aethiops) but somebody correct me if I’m wrong. Day two in Kenya has not disappointed!
I’m starting my mangrove training on Wednesday, so today (Monday) I’ve been helping out some other Staff here at the Mikoko Pamoja office. They are organising a huge beach clean with local schools and the community for World Oceans Day 2016, and I can’t wait! They are looking for donors to support the event so we’ve been busy writing letters and making posters.
In true busy-Gazi style, the fun for today didn’t stop there. We went on a walk along the Gazi Mangrove Boardwalk and it was seriously breathtaking.
Another perfect day in parasise.
