Elephant Roadblock

Dear Elephants,
Look, I get it. You're huge. So huge in fact, that you can stop traffic and prevent cars like my own from going a certain way.

That's OK, I'm familiar with your ways. In fact when training new researchers on driving through roundabouts in Nairobi, I always say, "cars in the roundabout always have the right of way, unless they're bigger than you." Same rules must apply in the Mara too, I guess.

Point taken.
Elephants: 1
David: 0

At any rate, I'm glad to see you're back in the Mara after your exodus to avoid the migration.

Thanks for posting, even if you can't write a chapter, it's nice to see some photos and see what you guys are up to.

Enjoy it. You can't use the excuse of elephants blocking the road in the States. And it's a lot less picturesque to be stuck behind a semi.
