We had hoped that the rain would keep the dust down, but unfortunately that was not the case... Puddles everywhere though, and they were being used to their full extent! Everything that needed a wash, was taken care of at the side of the road. Children were having baths, bicycles and motorbikes were being cleaned, as we're all sorts of vegetables... This was the first time in a month we saw carrots! Bright orange.
We pulled in off the road for some lunch, and almost immediately some people showed up checking to see if we were okay. Nancy, who lived in the house on the corner, wanted to buy the van, but instead she sent one of her chaps to get us a few tree tomatoes for our lunch. Very unusual. A bit like a cross between a tomato and a passion fruit. We took a few pictures and Nancy wrote down her email address.
The campsite we were looking for had excellent reviews, but was hard to find due to lack of signs. But we got there with a bit of creativity... The road, as soon as we left the tar road, disappeared, as per usual. Potholes galore again! But when we got to the site, it was gorgeous. Of course we were the only people there, but that did not matter. We were made very welcome, had a few drinks, a shower and a lovely dinner. We had a look around the site next morning and were very impressed. There was a bush camp with safari tents, some bands, and lovely camping spots, separated by trees.
We braced ourselves for the 3km of "holy" road, and started on our last leg of the journey, back to Jungle Junction, Nairobi.
