Some additional photos from my trip to Nairobi.

Mother and child in the Githurai slum of Nairobi.

Debbie McFerron with her favorite giraffe at the Giraffe Centre in Nairobi.

Giraffes are incredibly magnificent creatures.

Nelson Trent and Wahokia with their favorite giraffe.

Nelson considers the sobering reality of refugee children at Christ's Academy. The work done by the staff at the academy is, "The real deal," he says.

The children sing and dance for their visitors.

The headmaster, Rafael Mutua, is a magnet for the children at the academy. They know he loves them and they respond.

As well as singing and dancing, the children recite poetry and Bible verses from memory.

You got some really nice shots! LOVE the light on the man in front of the blackboard, and as always, the caption puts a lump in my throat...
