Thorns

Rachel found these gigantic thorns. I think they're from an acacia tree of some kind.

Often thorns like these are used as an inexpensive (free!) barb wire fence by ranchers in Kenya.

Hello there. I am a fellow blogger who lives in Marrakech. I am here for the week doing a training workshop. I was wondering if you could provide me with any shopping suggestions. I have Friday morning free to shop before I go to the airport. Any ideas? I would be so grateful if you could email me.

PS your daughter is so sweet:-) I have a little daughter, too.

I just found out that giraffes have sponge like lips so they can eat around the thorns of an acacia tree.. now I have even a better understanding of why that's needed!
