We’re in the process of writing entries for Kenya. In the meantime, check out Sherry’s posts from Otts World:

[singlepic=1243,175,,,right]Kenya Transportation – bring comfortable shoes and patience!
We’ve made it to Samburu National Park/Safari which is wonderful but half the fun was getting here from Nairobi.  It was a 6 hour drive through Nairobi and the Kenyan countryside.  We were able to see the bustling city of Nairobi on a Monday morning.  There were people everywhere – like an army of ants going after spilled Kool-Aid.  Most people seemed to commute by foot. Read More

[singlepic=1244,150,,,left]Kenyan Food – Bring on the meat!!
The food here is a vegetarian’s nightmare as well as a Atkin’s dieter’s nightmare – luckily – I’m neither of these so I am enjoying this meat heavy, carbo loaded Kenyan diet I am on! The food is hearty with many stew-like dishes with rice – yet the sauces they use have a distinct Indian flair as many Indian spices are used. This equates to yummy food! Read More

[singlepic=1245,200,,,right]Safari – Are we going to move???
We’ve seen some amazing animals here – you can get so close with no boundaries.  When I was young we used to go on field trips to Wild Life Prairie Park outside of Peoria – there you see animals in their ‘natural habitat’.  It offered the animals large areas to roam – larger than your average zoo basically.  It was a kind of Central Illinois Safari I suppose.  However – there were fences.  We loved to go to the place – it seemed dangerous in a way – which made it exciting.  You had to walk a long way to the animals and the animals eventually got smart and they just hid from you. However, here in Samburu National Park – the animals can’t really hide – you go to them. Read More

[singlepic=1246,200,,,left]Kenya Hospitality
Kenya was a real mix of classes – poor and ‘well -off’ – at times it was such a wide gap to take in – that it really kind of made your stomach turn. I can’t simply say that I just experienced this only in Kenya – I experienced it all over Eastern Africa. In the US – many people can go through their whole lives and never get exposed to the very poor/desolate or even the very rich. Heck – I must admit – in the US I went through my whole teenage years and never met a person of Jewish faith. Point being – you can be very sheltered in the US. Read More

We arrived in Lamu yesterday via a small 20 passenger plane and a very good looking your pilot! When we arrived at the small airfield it was lightly sprinkling, but by the time they took our luggage out on a little 2 wheel wooden cart and wheeled it off the runway, it was pouring rain.
