4/28/2015 - It was a cloudy day but the rain remained elusive at Ithumba as the surrounding areas continued to receive a considerable amount. Tiny droplets were received in the morning. At the browsing field, Garzi was pierced a by thorn which kept on troubling him and at last he decided to scratch his feet on a tree stump, and this dislodged the thorn and all was well. Given the cool temperatures of the day, the orphans enjoyed every moment as they concentrated on browsing. Towards mud bath time, Teleki and Bongo came across a drying water hole and spent some time playing with the thick mud. It was still cold at mud bath time and the orphans opted for a soil dusting exercise before returning back to the browsing field. In the afternoon, the orphans settled to browse at Imenti area and the orphans browsed calmly without any major observation. As the orphans returned back to the stockade in the evening, it was still cloudy with surrounding areas as far as Yatta plateau continuing to receive dramatic rains with thunder and lightening.
