So, if you’re savy, you’ll have found Megan Steele’s blog that she is writing while here in Kenya and you can have twice the reading pleasure! On days that I seem just too worn out to get anything onto the blog…it is nice…because she has often written one!
Anyhow, this is about a week late, but I thought I’d share some pictures from our Lake Naivasha adventure last weekend starting of course with a stop for coffee at Java House:
We then drove up from Nairobi through Limuru, a beautiful lush farming town:
From Limuru, we drove up until we reached the end of the Great Rift Valley http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rift_Valley_Province. Truly, pictures do not do it justice, but here’s a go of it:
From there we approached the town of Navaisha where we made a brief stop so I could go to the bathroom….ahh, my first experience with a squat toilet. Lovely. I don’t have a picture of that, but imagine it on the side of a service station, with a raggedly old wooden door, padlocked from the outside (latched from the inside thankfully), with a hole in the floor, a pull handle and NOTHING else. Pretty darn gross, but when you’ve held it for 3 hours, sometimes you take what you can get.
Ian and the kids then hid from the 7 cats at the YellowGreen Restaurant that ended up jumping up and stealing chicken off of Megan’s plate:
Then after lunch, off to the lake that we accessed from the Naivasha Country Club:
Ok, so I’ve been working on this darn post for like 4 days now, and it really looks like this is all of the pictures that I am going to successfully load on here. It was a beautiful trip and we had a great time. Megan has a great picture of one of the hippos we saw on the lake on her blog.
