On a cloudy day the orphans filed from the Stockades in single file, sheltering under trees when rain began at 11 a.m. Lesanju, Taveta and Siria enjoyed rolling around in the mud, watched by the others, after which Lesanju found a warm rock to lean against. Kenia would have liked to join her, but there was insufficient room for two. None of the orphans were interested in the usual mudbath venue today, having had their fill out in the bush. Shimba led them back to the Stockades in the evening, feeding as they went.
