Snippets of Travel in East Africa

Once again I’ve fallen into the delinquent trap of being so busy with various adventures in coming and going that I haven’t kept along with myself. It’s really be an incredible couple of months. Just after Zanzibar I head straight to Somaliland, quite the contrast. From there, back to Nairobi, then traveling throughout Kenya, on to Ethiopia for a couple of weeks – including feeding hyenas in Harar and touring ancient churches in Lalibela, and now back in Nairobi. With a good internet connection, I should at least be able to provide a visual tour of my adventures along the way.

Here are a few highlights of what is to come:

Visiting nomadic villages in Somaliland.

Camel ride on the beach in Mombasa.

Chilling out between travels.

Feeding wild hyenas in Harar, Ethiopia (yes, it deserves and will get a more full explanation!)

Visiting ancient stone carved churches in Lalibela, Ethiopia.

Plus, much, much more. Stay tuned!

    That’s a cool place to chill out –the right colors and everything.

    What’s the name of the tree in the first picture? It’s striking.

    And, by the way, that’s a great camel picture.

    ‘Drea – Yes, great place to chill. I want one of those fabulous garden beds some time in my life.

    Wish I had a clue on the tree, it was taken just outside of Hargeisa, Somaliland – If anyone knows, please comment!

    Yes, love the camel ride. It was awesome.
