Thursday 3rd was a great day. A visit from Rob’s parents and an afternoon in the Masaai market with Fiona was a good way to start. We had a great time bargaining for prices and some of us bought a little too much that day. Unfortunately I did not buy anything that day but it was nice to spend time with all the YAVs.
Afterward we all went to wait for the taxi that was going to take us to dinner. Minutes went by and then hours. Finally the taxi got there, but we found that it was only one car when we had asked for a van to take all 7 of us. So, instead of waiting for another taxi to get there we did it the Kenyan way and all pilled into the back of the car. It was a great bounding experience and we had plenty of time for bounding on the way to the restaurant, which was like a 30-minute drive.
In the end all was mostly forgotten after we got to the restaurant. Carnivores is a buffet style restaurant that caters to meat lovers. With a variety of different meats that include beef, pork, lamb, crocodile, ostrich, chicken, among others it’s hard to keep track of what you are eating at any given time. I ate way too much that night and tried some very interesting things.
One of the more interesting parts of the restaurant experience was seeing three cats that would walk around in between the tables. They didn’t really do much more than just walk around as if you were not there. It’s also important to note here that the cats that I saw were all fat. You could just tell that they were well fed.
