Sadly it was the last day in Kenya, sunny as always (our at least so it seems!). Breakfast was at 8am followed by the early-morning luggage packing and loading. Vervet monkeys showed up seemingly to say goodbye to us. We took a group photo with the staff before departure to help us remember the trip.

We had a long drive to Jamo Kenyatta International Airport with a few short stops for lunch as well as souvenirs. Nairobi traffic unsurprisingly was crowded and loud. We had a taste of the foggy smoggy air too. We arrived safe and sound eventually.

Thank you Dr. Stephen Lougheed and Dr. Yuxiang Wang for this amazing field course. We appreciate the chance to learn and experience African nature and culture!

Goodbye Kenya! We loved you!
