Meet Lucky


Today we spent the day at the park…with so many park options we did go to a new one today.

And my 2nd daughter Aasha decides to rescue a bird and feed the bird with food and water. Then she named the bird Lucky.

So here I would like to introduce to you our newest addition to the Manns clan….Lucky Manns….LOL!!!

Look at that smile knowing that she is saving a birds life….


And I guess that will be a head massage….

Aasha (My view on the day trip to Elephant and Giraffe Center)


The elephant orphanage was amazing we got to get up close and watch the Rangers feed the baby elephants milk from baby bottles while they told us how they became orphaned most of them fell down a well while they where still barely able to walk and others had their mothers killed by poachers.one of the elephant came out of the rope and started running around like crazy.

Everyone was so scared but it settled down after a bit of time. I found out that you can also adopt an elephant not necessarily take it home just pay $50 for a year to help fund that animals health and well-being. They also gave the animals their own ย names based on how or where they were orphaned.

The giraffe center was probably my favorite. They gave us little pellets ( but not a lot because the giraffesย were on a diet) then you would stand on a platform and the giraffes would walk right up, you hold your hand out and their long purple sticky tongue should grab it. It was kinda disgusting my mom was so scared she was shaking. But overall they where so gentle and pretty and their eyes where huge and shiny. Can you believe that our own dad put a pellet between his teeth and the giraffes took it,? is called the giraffe kiss ewww ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜›๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฟ!!. There where also hogs at the feet of the giraffe ๐Ÿ—๐Ÿ—๐Ÿ— ย dung beetles rolling poop around yuck ๐Ÿœ๐Ÿœ๐Ÿœ๐ŸŒฐ.

I had so much fun today and I think that everyone who visits Kenya should definitelyย go to the elephant orphanage and the giraffe center. Type later everyone ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Chess Tournament Finally Over


I got 2 1/2 points at the just finished millionaire Juniors tournament which was held for 3 days in Nairobi Kenya. It was great and I got to meet new people, and also ย got their phone numbers. Some of the kids asked my coach if he could organize to ย play a friendly game. Which means I will be going to a lot more chess tournament in the future. Possibly while in Asia.

I had so much fun at the ย chess tournament. It ย is one thing that I really would like to do again. I was nervous at first but after the first day it was awesome!! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

Aasha first day of chess tournament


hey everyone today was the first day of the chess tournament.

I was quite nervous but even though I did not win any of the three games we have got 2 more days and 4 more games.I learned so much from today than I think I would have if I had won. Thanks to our coach uncle Brian (we call him Uncle B.) he helped me learn from my mistakes. It was really chilly out there so just in case you go to a tournament in kenya during raining season remember to bring a lot of coats :)๐Ÿ˜ . Anyway so I got more confidence and patience in my games which I am positive will help a lot in tommorows section of the tournament. I got interviewed by citizen news (I think it was called) and will be on news tonight if you watch it please tell me how it could have been better.

Will be back on soon… and remember it is better to lose and learn something that can help you grow (kiazan) than to win and gain a trophy that will just sit on your desk.๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Welcome to my personal page. Here I will share all about my personal view on our families 5 yrs ย world tour journey.

I am 12yrs old and homeschooled. I am in 8th grade going on 9th. I love animals and I love reading too.

I was awarded the youngest black belt in shotakan karate in Africa. I worked very hard to get my black belt and so honored to be the youngest in Africa.

Also I love swimming and I am a junior life saver….which is awesome!

I just started learning the art of becoming a chess master…and tomorrow I will be playing in the millionaire chess tournament that is held in Nairobi kenya. Wish me luck! ๐Ÿ™‚

Am also trained in CPR, this is to be able to save someone when the need arises.

Wondering what I do for fun? ย All of the above and gymnastics which is fun I think you guys should totally try it!

See you back here soon ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‹
