This is my first week since leaving Kenya. People are really taking good care of the new “Panthers” as they are known here in Tubney House in Oxford University’s Wildlife Conservation Research Unit (WildCRU). The other students are from Nepal, Zimbabwe, South Africa Bolivia, Madagascar and Bhutan.
The weather is not that good although the people here think that it is the best time of the year for them! Contrary to the weather, the people are extremely nice to us! Lucy Tallents and Murray are helping us to get used to the life in Tubney and navigate around Oxford. Here is our new home!
Yesterday, I was taken out punting by my new “parents” here in England. A punt is a kind of boat that is used on the rivers here in Oxford. We also visited the Codrington Library. It had very beautiful sculptures done many years ago. My new papa and mama took good care of me on Saturday, showing me great places in my new city.
We also got a chance to be welcomed by Professor David Macdonald. His words were those of a father welcoming a son to a new home; he told us that Tubney is just like our homes we left behind. True to his words, this is actually like my place in the Chyulus.
