So after we visited my hometown, we decided on a mini 'vacation' just a chance for MrH to see more of the beautiful Kenyan land. We went on an overnight trip to a town called Naivasha together with my parents. This town is famous for national parks, mountains but especially for its flower exports. While there I learned that about 60% of flower exports to Europe come from here! That was pretty cool. Naivasha is also located in the Great Rift Valley. While here we visited a national park called "Hell's Gate". The name was given due to the hot springs found inside a gorge located in the park. Here are some of the wildlife we saw.

|This water was hot! You could place an egg in it and would be ready in 10 minutes!!!|
We spent the evening at a lovely "cottage" (it was bigger than our current house yet it was considered a cottage ha!) right beside a lake. In the morning on the next day we saw beautiful flamingos on the lake shore.

|we made it to the top!|
|now to do the 6 mile loop...|
|going downhill was easier but very slippery|
|hot, tired, dirty but happy!|
|our poor feet, can u tell it was dusty :)|
It was a wonderful two days and I am so grateful to God for the chance to have this experience with MrH!
