After yesterdays stomack trouble itwas pleasant to be back on the road again. A little drained of energy (as I believe you can see from the time ;-), but nevertheless enjoyable in the fantastic semi-desert landscape !
Rugged peaks a'la Matterhorn rising above vast flat plains of orange & dark red sand dottet by huge black volcano outcroppings.
We stay for the night at a policemans house in the little desert village Laisamis where we have been treated w. excellent friendship - caring forour rest & wellbeeing and inviting us for traditional Kenyan ugali-lunch & dinner.
The dimitutive hotels are closed due to a cholera epedemi in the village. Sweet dreams !
