EAST AFRICA 2018. Photos from January

After a FILTHY ride into Uganda. A rare ‘selfie’.

They call it a road… The way from Suam Border into Uganda is lovely.

But it’s a hard road!

Precious and Alex, in the middle, with his brother, Nic and sister Gloria, at Coffeeland, Sipi, Uganda.

Michael, Coffeeeland’s cheerful askari.

Sister Betty, a nurse of the ‘old school’ at Sipi Health Centre

My hut at Coffeeland Resort, the quietest sleep in the world!

Alex’s aunt, Kanifa, makes us tea at Sipi

Justine, Kapchorwa, Uganda

Rose, who needs no langauge to express herself!

Marion, watched by Godfrey, Sipi

Children at Sipi. How they love to see a muzungu!

Young boys, with some years to anticipate, reenact their cicumcision ceremony!

On the ‘road’ back to Kenya

The old colonial hotel at Kaptagat

Complete with log fire, almost on the Equator, but HIGH!

The drop, almost a mile in altitude, into the Rift Valley. Wow!!! My favourite road.

The scenery in these Kenyan highlands is superb.

…just superb!

This could be Switzerland!

Mount Kenya reveals its snow. A lucky view for me.

Rapeseed north of Mount Kenya, with the great deserts stretching north.

Lost in the Aberdares Forest. This was remote!

Bck down the wonderful rocky road into the Kerio Valley. 24 hairpins, I was told – every one with a spectacular view.

Mary, Kimwarer, Kerio Valley

The scenery at the bottom of the Rift Valley is totally different. It’s hot too…

Cook Joseph, in his kitchen at Kessup.

My third journey through the magnificent Cheringani Hills. No weariness with this scenery.
