The drive from the airport was interesting, slow going on some very bad roads that are constantly in some state of repair. There are people everywhere. After the time we had spent in India, we knew what to expect as far as road conditions, housing, and population. Nairobi did not disappoint.
Wildebeest Camp is where we are staying
We fought off the urge to sleep, and went down the road to a surprisingly well-stocked supermarket. Got a couple things, had some tasty PB and banana sandwiches. We had some long overdue showers and had a much needed nap. We didn't want to screw up our sleep too much, so we forced ourselves out of bed after 3 hours. Went for another walk down the road, did some reading. As well, we have booked a 3-Day safari starting on Friday to the Masai Mara Game Reserve. We had dinner here with the owners and the few others that are staying here and learned a little bit about the tourism industry and corruption here in Kenya. We fought off sleep until 9:30pm, and then we collapsed.
