So, cycled round Hell’s Gate in Naivasha.
This is Fischer’s Tower, where the two men who help people climb it introduced me to the rock hyrax, who share a distant relative with elephants. They admitted to me that they have given them names.

My pictures of them didn’t come out well as they are small and were in shade but you can find them on google

And of Njorowa Gorge which I was shown through by a Maasai guide called Jacob. It was a bit of a scramble down and up out of it and there are very hot springs along the way.

Anyway, failed to find out anything about my father’s farm, Glasslande, and it was raining so have now taken a room at JamboHouse on Lamu island.
I’m staying in the town, because I’m not much of a beach person. It’s shabby and friendly and sunny. No cars but lots of donkeys and boats.
This is a picture of two little boys with “hobby donkeys” – a stick, a piece of rag and a length of string.

Today was Kenya’s 50th Anniversary of Independence. Their were parades and speeches in the small town square. In the afternoon I was on the roof terrace and heard a woman giving a speech. The crowd was roaring with laughter and it sounded like the “save Bwian” scene from Monty Python.

Tonight lying under a ceiling fan, a mosquito net and listening to John Cale.
