Diary Day
ashley's Diary
Date 07 May 2006
Country Kenya (Masai Mara)
Weather Sunny & Wet
Diary We had been told by people who know about these things that cheetahs usually sit on top of termite mounds which enable them to get a better signal on their mobile phones when they are phoning around to find something to eat “You see any game?” “No, you?” “No” etc etc Obviously signal was strong on our first day (Leopards have been very busy building the masts) as we didn’t spot any but saw lots of lions lying around on their backs wanting a tummy tickle. Had come prepared this time with blindfolds and earplugs for the kids. “Are you sure you wouldn’t like to tickle their tummies Clare?” I asked innocently. “Don’t take the piss” was the polite reply. The weather was surprisingly sunny but the roads were very, very wet and muddy from storms on the previous days. Stopped for lunch and put Tess on the roof with a pair of binoculars as an early warning device. In case any animals wanted to eat our tuna & mayonnaise sandwiches. No takers.
