Where I stayed

Sunday, June 19, 2005

After a fairly nasty 15 hour bus journey overnight from Mwanza, which took us through the Kenyan border in the late afternoon, arrived in Nairobi at about half four in the morning.

As we'd booked ourselves into a nice 5 star hotel for a few days before heading home, we decided not to pitch up in the middle of the night looking pretty smelly & dirty with our rucksacks... So, we checked into a half decent hotel opposite for a few hours to get some sleep instead. That proved to be a particularly good idea, because when we got to the Stanley Hotel the following morning to check in, Expedia had apparently cocked up our booking and the hotel was full ... Not a huge shame though as they had to upgrade us to a suite for 4 nights instead (I'm really getting the hang of this backpacking malarkey) !! Unfortunately the stay wasn't as good as it could have been, with the weather pretty cloudy and showery most of the time, so I didn't manage to get as much use of the lovely rooftop pool and sun-loungers as I'd hoped ! It was lovely to eat loads of nice food again and have lovely hot power showers though so I was feeling nice and refreshed by the time I got back to the UK .... Raring to go with the next leg of my travels !
