Kenya and Back
For the past two weeks I have been in Nairobi and Watamu, Kenya. These two places are miles apart both literally as well as figuratively. In Nairobi (actually I was an hour outside of Nairobi at 7,000 feet or 2,000 meters) I was in meetings almost all week and when I wasn’t in meetings I was teaching photography to several NGOs all the while, freezing my tail off. I never would have imagined that I would be so cold in Africa in August. In Watamu I found myself working with one organization that is dedicated to conservation. I hope to be telling you more about A Rocha this week with a blog post or two and some fun photos. Watamu, situated on a beach, was nice and warm with a wonderful cooling breeze all day. When I wasn’t out snorkeling with two marine biologists I was ringing birds (more on “bird ringing” in the next day or two).
As I write this I am sitting in the Kuala Lumpur airport after a total of 15 hours in the air and 10 hours of sitting around airports waiting on flights. I am sleep deprived and ready to get home, kiss my wife and daughter and hit the sack.
