After 3 months in India it was time for a change of scenery.  We arrived in Nairobi, and our main goal was to try and figure out what safari to take and get it booked.  We wanted to leave the city for a few days before Virginia and Russ arrived.

The exercise turned out to be much more difficult then it should have been and the local safari touts were extremely persistent and annoying.  We managed to book a 4 day three night safari but not without much annoyance.

Kenya and Nairobi are much more developed than I thought it would be and the roads and infrastructure are great compared to what we have been used to over the last few months.  It does have a totally different feel to it though and we  can tell that at night we don't want to be out and about if  we don't have to be.

After we met up with Virg and Russ, we went out for a fancy dinner at a famous restaurant here - Carnivore.  It's a BBQ'd meat all you can eat extravaganza.  We ate the usual fare, as well as crocodile, ostrich, and some meatball jumbles.  Carnivore was voted as one of the top 50 restaurants of the world!
