The real adventure begins


overcast 20 °C

So I conquered Mount Kenya and then was dropped off in Nairobi at 10.30 pm with 3 bags, no battery on my phone and no accommodation, aren’t Cams International great!! Luckily I managed to find a camp site to stay and after being seriously ripped off by a cab driver I was safe and could relax and unwind…till 6 am!!

I got up early and decided I would go to Arusha in Tanzania to see my friend I have met out here Sian. The shuttle to Arusha was very bumpy but they looked after me and got me across the border and when I got there Sian was waiting for me with her friend Giggz.

We spent the day in a house (the first one I have been in since I have been here) and then in the evening we went out to party at a local travelers camp. The next day we spent some time in the town and then we went to an orphanage to see the child, Adam, that Sian has sponsored and we played monopoly with them.

In the evening we went to a local bar/restaurant and they had meat in sauce that you eat with your hands and a few drinks then we headed back for an early night.

Sunday Morning we had to get up early again to go to Nairobi to meet another friend in the afternoon before heading up to Nyeri which is around Mount Kenya again where stayed at Giggz’s house. His family were so welcoming and we had a chapatti lesson so I will will be a pro by the time I get home.

Monday we were up early again to have a quick walk around Nyeri before heading back to Nairobi so we could get Sian to the airport which was hassle free. I spent the night at a camp site in Nairobi and I will be heading back to Nyeri this afternoon then tomorrow who knows where I might be, I love waking up and not knowing where I am going or what I will be doing.

So for now…
