The Island of Lamu, Kenya

Our Room at the Jannat House Hotel
(A two star hotel featuring electricity (when it was on), water (no hot water), mirrors in the bathroom that would be very useful if you were three feet tall, three tiny bars of soap for five men, strings across the ceiling to keep the bats from coming down into the room, and, of course, lots of mosquito netting. Air conditioning? What's that? Not even a fan!) The Hotel itself was very attractive and offered a beautiful view from the roof. If you want to order lunch be prepared to wait at least an hour and a half - it takes time to buy all those ingredients!

The Donkey Sanctuary in Lamu.

The waterfront was beautiful.
