... but it was all those things and more. We had to do some serious rock hopping; clambering in a steep, narrow ravine; scaling an eighty foot hanging ladder to reach the spot where we could look down into the rushing waters.

The airport looked like any other airport, though the view from the sky let me know that Kenya is still not hugely developed as there were large green patches of empty land.
