Breakfast with Giraffes

One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?

After the world's non-ending, turns out we have another year or so until another predicted apocalypse. This all, of course, means one thing: a little more time for bucket list items, and Giraffe Manor should definitely be in the top 10.

The boutique hotel in Nairobi, Kenya was built in the 1930s, has six double bedrooms, and a few long-necked resident guests.

It borders the Karen Blixen Museum -- once home to Out of Africa author Karen Blixen -- and set in 12 acres of private land within a 140-acre sanctuary for Rothschild Giraffes.

The area, which includes an elephant and giraffe center, was set up by the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife and now hosts conservation and education programs for Kenyan children.

Hope you weren't planning on eating that biscuit.
