Look what Mom got in an email!

When I saw this I asked mom if I can post this one!  
She took the cute bird one so she said I could.

Now even I would love to visit this place,
but do not think cats are allowed!

Never mind the shots I would have to get and being put in quarantine!

Guess I will stick with just the pictures!

Email start:

Giraffe Manor is a unique property and hotel in the Lang'ata suburb of
Nairobi, Kenya, famous for is resident herd of endangered 
Rothschild giraffes that live in the extensive grounds of the
manor house.  Every day shortly before 9am, the mammoth beasts
stroll up to the house and poke their heads through the windows
and doors in search of morning treats

Guests could feed the giraffes from their breakfast table, photograph
them and interact with this graceful animal through the open
window, at the front door and even at the second floor bedroom
window. This is the only place in the world where one can share
breakfast with the world’s tallest animal.

The Giraffe Manor was built in 1932 by Sir David Duncan, in 150 acres 
of land running down to the Mbagathi River, the southern boundary 
of the city of Nairobi. In the 1960s the Manor was purchased by a 
local investor who leased it to a succession of people, including 
the late Dennis Lakin, before it fell into disrepair, 

When Jock died, Betty decided to open her house, now called The Giraffe 
Manor, to visitors. Today, many tourist make the Giraffe Manor 
part of their East African Safari. Some spend a week here and The 
Giraffe Manor is reported to have many repeat guests, who have 
become old friends with the hotel owners. 

The Giraffe Manor is surrounded by 140 acres of indigenous forest just 
outside Kenya's capital, Nairobi. As well as the giraffe, the 
property is also home to many species of birds, large families of 
warthogs and the elusive Bush Buck.

Email end.
