Fun in the Sun

|Fun in the Sun

The Field School is not all work; there is also some time to relax. On Sunday students went to Eliye Springs on the sandy shores of Lake Turkana. This little “resort” features a small restaurant with fabulous food and cold sodas (special treat!).  Students relaxed in the shade under umbrellas and cooled off in the lake.  There was also a little market, where students could purchase some nice locally made souvenirs.
