I guess some people would be frustrated at this point but I expect there to be the unexpected when traveling, especially when you are going somewhere like Kenya. Our travel agent sent an e-mail yesterday and the extra night that was supposed to be at the Serova Stanley hotel in Kenya has become an extra night at the Serena Mountain Lodge on Mount Kenya.

I was really looking forward to seeing the Stanley Hotel that is so much a part of history of Nairobi but after the two grenade attacks in Nairobi I was slightly getting nervous about the threats and the crime of Nairobi. Plus of all the places in the world we have been the cities aren't the most memorable. Cities are cities. They are usually loud, dirty and you have to be constantly alert. The truth was that we weren't even planning on leaving the hotel.

The one thing that I was slightly disappointed in our itinerary was that we only had the one night, the first night full of jet-lag and exhaustion, at the Serena Mountain Lodge. Now we have two and the bonus is that we will have Breakfast Lunch and Dinner included.

Things are really looking up. We won't be staying in Nairobi so I am not feeling as nervous about the terrorist attack threats and My 94 year old grandmother made it through surgery without a hitch. In fact she is surprising the doctors. They said she had the bones of a 70 year old. Looks like this isn't going to be another Machu Picchu. Maybe our luck is changing.
