Monday looked like more rain, so we decided to ride the matatu and travel to Nakuru and Nyahururu to see some country. 2 hours later we are taking lunch in Nyahururu and meeting Charles, a retired school teacher and environmentalist. He drives us to Thompson Falls and shares a bit of local history. He asks the matatu driver to stop at a certain point on our return trip to see the "best view of the Rift Valley" - and it was. It had rained lightly all day, so we were glad to be in a matatu and not on the trail.
Tuesday was a hike into Hell's Gate, a trip down the gorge and back out on the Buffalo Circuit trail. We were hiking for over 8 hours that day. Once more, dodged the rain bullets and managed to return to the Inn before it started to rain. We met 2 young girls from Holland - medical students working in Rwanda and had a great visit with them.
Wednesday was the return trip to Nairobi and home, to wash clothes and pack my bags for another most interesting work-week in Nairobi - my next blog.
I hope all is well with all of you - I know spring must be close and that any snow that falls will not last long. Life continues to be good here.
Hugs and love to all - Mutanu (Pat)
