Being fabulous on the coast!

Its official. I am now having the best time I've had in Kenya. My dear friend Haley and her friend Jeanie are (as we speak) visiting me in Kenya. We just left Lamu island which is now in my "top 5" fav places to go. there are no cars on the island and only donkeys. Once you get off the plane you literally take a boat (luggage and all) to get to the island. Its kind of a celebrity hide out too. Princess Caroline of Monoco and Mick Jagger apparently have some houses there. We spent 5 fabulous nights at this quasi remote island and got to catch some of the cultural festival. From this trip:
  1. I am now extremely "mocha" (bordering espresso color). Christmas gift to myself = wicked tan for the holidays.
  2. I realized I can eat fish everyday.
  3. I can dodge donkey poo at night.
  4. I am very ok with waking up and going directly to the pool every morning.

Anyways, we are now in Malindi and head to Mombasa tomorrow. Pics are soon to come! Sadly this trip ends for me since i return to Embu Sunday. FYI I will be back in the US on the 20th. Can't wait to see you all soon!
