Kenya – day 3

We had a very busy, tiring day today. Our driver collected us and took us to a meeting point where we met the high school bus contains some of the pupils and staff from our host schools.

We travelled north on a road that we had not yet been on, so everything was new and interesting.  We saw camels being herded along the road side, lots of goats and very many donkeys. We travelled through very dry, desert areas and some more highland areas with twisty roads not unsimilar to our roads in Scotland. We went on a boat trip on Lake Baringo and saw crocodiles and hippos in their natural habitat. We saw ladies fishing for their lunch. Cactus plants grew along the road side like our whin bushes!

We visited a very dramatic gorge where some local divers showed us their version of your pier jumping! We passed through lots of towns and villages and even Mr Kietany’s home town.

There is much more for me to tell you about, but that will have to wait until we get home. Tomorrow we have our final visit to our schools where we prepare for Friday’s conference, before we move on to Nairobi. We will be very sad saying goodbye to all the lovely pupils we have met, but hopefully it will be au revoir rather than goodbye!
