Spent two days with Lydia and Brett in their idyllic home in Karen, Nairobi.
Took the night train from Nairobi to Mombasa – only three hours late on arrival. Shared a second class berth with Lara, a young German girl volunteering to teach English to children in the slums of Nairobi.
As we were leaving the station a young woman from the train asked where we were going. It turned out that she was going to Watamu beach with her two friends and asked if I wanted to share a taxi with them, which I did.
She comes from Sweden and works as a project manager for migrants – that is the kind of people who turned up in my office as asylum seekers, so we had experiences to share.
Now sitting in “Savannahs”, a lovely B&B and bakery run by a welsh couple. Yes, I realise I haven’t met many Kenyans yet, but I learning a lot.
And this place is lovely.
