Got to Nairobi on Tuesday evening. We left the campsite at sunrise over the Ewaso Nyrio River, with a short stop at Buffalo Springs Game Park. As always Victor knows right where to go, twigas(giraffes),elephants, Simbas(lioness') and crocs, fabulous!! The chatter on the radio tells of some tribal skirmishes in the first town we need to pass through. They put big boulders all over the road to slow traffic and bring attention to their cause. We end up needing a police escort to get us safely through. On the way going Mt Kenya was shrouded in cloud cover, today her snow capped peaks are stunning! Stopped for lunch at a small restaurant. Loving these "local" spots, the food and atmosphere are great! After a long 12 hr day we are welcomed home, clean bathrooms, hot showers, clean sheets and dinner. Feeling spoiled by Mama Mina :-). After a leisurely start Wednesday morning, some laundry and we are off to the Rehoboth project to do some cleaning and rearranging. A stop at the shop and local butchers for dinner makings, I'm on again, they love the stir fried rice. Today Ruth and I spent some time beading then a trip to the local market. More dye for the sisal, and great bead shopping:-)
