Status Update: Kenya Riding

3 February 2012

An excellent ride from the lower eastern savannahs of Kenya back up to the capital for the weekend. The route from Mombasa is filled with trucks, making for a passing fest. The two- lane road has a wide-enough shoulder that I just cruise up on the left, passing trains of slow-moving trailers and they drive on the left here 😉 On Kenyan roads, size matters. If you look like a small motorcycle, oncoming traffic doesn’t care and pushes you off. But, I’m prepared, and have my flood lights on, gaining my respect from traffic 🙂

Just had my first hot shower in 3 weeks! A weekend of dinner with friends, catching-up, maybe some dancing and then back to the field.
