My First Overnight Trip with my Class (by Azra Bhanji, Grade 5k)

28 June 2005
We all went to the "Great Rift Valley Lodge" (which is in Naivasha) on the 7th of June 2005. To tell you the truth, it was the greatest field trip ever! Since I was most excited about the first day, it shall be the longest paragraph.

The day we left Nairobi (Tuesday) we went to "Hells Gate" which is an awesome place to have a picnic, but after that-we walked and walked (my poor legs) but we also learnt quite a bit about certain cliffs and how they were formed. Then we went back on the bus and after a really exhausting time we reached the place we were dreaming about for the last few days: Our hotel. I would have to say it was beautiful even though I never appreciate natural beauty. Since we were extremely tired, Mrs. Chabuga cancelled our Nature walk (phew, boy was I grateful!). We had a quick swim, than had dinner, then watched the shiny, twinkling stars at night. I’m almost sure I saw the planet Venus!
