- the inhabitants love to burn things, anything...this creates a disgusting smell and wafts through the window as you pass the towns
- it is seriously populated ...i discovered this when I was desperate for a wee, very hard to find a deserted spot in these parts!
- A new light was shed onto car washing...drive your car into a shallow dam and start washing! This method can also be applied to bicycles and motorbikes!
- most people wear these cheap,brightly coloured slip slops, it reminds me of the Malibu advert! They definitly live the island life...well at that pace anyway!
After a good rest, we drove into the Kakmega Forest, WOW, so beautiful and instatnly calming. I was desperate for the loo again and was pointed in the direction of the toilet...a long drop...it was so bad, i called Jen to keep guard and went on the outskirts of the forest! hee hee
We went for a very interesting walk in the forest witha guide, Caroline. Jen and i had a 'bush manicure' - there is a 'sandpaper tree' that we used to buff and file our nails, when Caroline offered some nail polish (bright orange sap from a tree), we drew the line! Delicious dinner cooked by the master chef and his apprentice followed by smores :) (marshies and marie biscuits)
We are outside Eldoret now, thankfully in a chalet (it rained last night and all can say is that i am not that much of a water baby!) looks like we are expecting some rain ...
Awaiting the arrival of our final team mate...5 more sleeps and counting! Until next time.... kwaheri!
