Friday, October 21, 2016 – Work, play, and wrap-up day…

Our last day in the Mara required more meetings and revisiting projects. Some worked, some took some time off. The medical team continued their training. Keith Leavitt and I went to visit a school that we are planning on helping.

Meeting with the community leaders and the school administration:

We went to a Maasai village to see their daily life. Kathy Hager was carrying a load of firewood but could not move more than a few feet:

Around 5:30, we all gathered on a hillside to watch the sunset over the Mara and enjoy a sundowner. This evening was set aside to honour each of our five drivers.
