Africa day 1

Today turned out to be very interesting. We had our flight diverted to Tanzania because nairobi had a big fire. I did get to see the top of Mt.Kilamanjaro but did not get to take a picture. We spent a few hours at the airport then they put us on a bus and brought us to Nairobi. Along the way we were stopped for an hour because locals blocked the road protesting a child being hit by a car. It was scary especially when the military came to break it up and fired into the crowd. After that excitement we spent a couple of hours at the border getting across. Got to the hotel after about 8 hours of travel. It was an exciting day and getting to see Tanzania only makes me want to go back. Have to get a closer look at that mountain in other words climb it. Hopefully leave in the morning for our first park. We are waiting for the rest of our party who are stranded because of the fire. Very exciting day.
