        Finally our feet have touched African soil. Processing was quick and we were picked up at the airport by our driver William. It was a one hour drive from the Airport to our hotel - a bit of a rough one - and Anna (suffering some slight dehydration and motion sickness) needed to crash (hit the bed) as soon as possible. So it's just myself and the …

        In the early morning, Victoria opened the doors so I could snap some beach pics. After breakfast, S & I toured Turtle Watch, a wonderful local ecology center that rescues turtles, teaches s chool groups, and involves the community in marine protection. In the afternoon, Jonah took Shelley & Lynne & me up the creek in his boat. ...

        ... income generation, that way they set their foundation firmly from the start and they have finances to implement their projects.

        On that note I am going to love you and leave you. I am going to go back to my beautiful view of the ocean and reflect on my time here in Kenya. I believe the next blog I will write would most probably be from the UK. There is someone very special I am going to see in the UK, which is the main reason why I am going back to the UK...but more on that later! ...

        ... the agricultural work they do on the coast and who knows maybe that is something we can explore together.

        When I met Chloe and Luke, together we went to explore Kilifi town, we came across a juice bar called weight watcher's juice bar. I thought that was quite amazing. The juices were delicious, they were only 100 bob (100 shillings) and she would make you any cocktail you wanted. I had avocado and passion fruit - to die for - we then did some shopping of course and I ...

        Last night a cockroach crawled across my shoulder and into my sheets. I suppose its nice to have some bedtime company for a change. Today is an unscheduled public holiday as President Kenyatta will be sworn in. I bet they will make sure there isn't a power cut whilst its televised. This means the Turtle Watch again is closed except for rehab and releases. Again I start the day by cleaning out the tanks. Tiger Lily is doing great and may actually be released soon. The other ...
