That night at the campsite was our first real taste of camping as it should be. We all helped with the cooking of bangers and mash whilst having a few drinks and a good natter with wind ups. Followed by cakes and custard...with jam beautifully spread on top by Ronnie...we couldn't really knock the pudding it was great! Then more sitting, laughing and a jovial evening...except when a couple of the guys came back from town and told us the england result...that soured spirits a little...but didn't tarnish a lovely night.
The following day all we had to do was head back to our campsite, so we got there for about 2pm after a stop at the Nakumatt supermarket for some more essentials (alcohol and sweets). Back at the campsite we chilled, set up our tents and drank wine (from the bottle...me and Kristy were sharing our bottles so it was easiest...and i knew the guys would kill me if i didn't put that bit in). Until 7pm when we left for the restarant. I have been told it is the most famous restaurant in Africa...it is called Carnivore and they just bring loads of types of meat round to your table...so we had Lamb, beef, sausages, camel, crocodile, ostrich, chicken...the crocodile tasted a bit fishy...the camel was a little under done for my tastes...the chicken was stunning...and we all drank a bit more and had a great meal (though tinged with Sadness as Kristy was leaving us the next morning to head down to Cape Town).
All we've done today is go to the Ethiopian Embassay to get our visas and hang around Nairobi city...Best go as i've already spent a fortune today. Will try and get photos on very soon but it's easier said than done.
