Today I got to play baseball with the village children. It is quite chaotic because most of them don't speak english. Today the Samoan rugby team were at N/a'an ku se looking at the animals. The lady who runs the place, her husband used to play for the Springboks, so alot of rugby teams come to N/a'an ku se.

Today, when I went to feed the meerkats, I lay down on the ground to take a picture of one, and another one hopped on my back. Pretty soon all three were on my back. When I went on the baby baboon walk, Lala sat on my shoulder most of the way there and back. I got bitten by Troy twice again. Tonight Troy was sleeping in the room next door. He managed to spill laundry powder all over everything. We also met a lady who runs a meerkat sancuary in Palm Springs and is asociated with Meerkat Manor.

Today I got to go on a walk with a tame cheetah called Samira, and pet her. I also got bitten by Troy(baboon) twice.

Today my group was doing food prep. That means from 8-10:30 we chop up food and feed the baby baboons, big baboons, rabbits, birds and Sylvia. Sylvia is a tame Duiker (type of antelope). She ended up here because the local bushman were hand raising her for meat, but someone at N/a'an ku Se got them to trade for a goat. Buckies(baby baboon) peed on my foot today.

I found out that the age limit is supposed to be 18,but they let me in even though I am only 11.

Today we fly to Windhoek.In Windhoek we are volunteering at an animal orphanage for 2 weeks before we get a car and start driving around.

Yesterday,on the flight from Sydney to Johannesburg,the captain came and said hello to me because it was my birthday. Because of the time change,my birthday lasted for 34 hours.Since my birthday lasted so long,I had about 5 meals.Remove Formatting from selection
