A Child of Yesterday: My Childhood in Kenya

Rhona Lewis

You’ve already read about the Nairobi Elephant Nursery. Did you wonder if children growing up in Kenya cuddle elephants all day long? Well, I grew up in Kenya and I can assure you that this was not the case. Like children all over the world, I spent most of my days at school. Outside of school, I loved swimming, hiking, and camping. And get ready for this … I never worried about buying the prettiest stationary or the cutest earrings because there were no fancy shops in Kenya!
