10/30/2016 - The orphans approached the forest today in a playful mood and we watched many of them scamper around the bushes charging, stamping and bashing into one another. Maramoja, Roi, Sana Sana, Mbegu, Naseku, Rapa, Ndotto and Lasayen were all leading the game with Ndotto and Lasayen running after Naseku and trying to climb on her. Naseku would turn on the two playful boys and playfully push them away – at one point Lasayen tried to climb on her back as Ndotto tried to climb on her head at the same time! Roi started trumpeting in excitement and suddenly everyone joined in the game running all over the place. They were charging and trumpeting and the little ones like Jotto, Tamiyoi, Ambo, Esampu and Malkia just ran around their feet as they are too young to be able to trumpet yet. They always seem to behave like this when a new orphan is about to arrive in the nursery and sure enough just after 10am we received a call regarding another orphan baby that needed rescuing from the Tsavo Conversation Area.
