souvenirs kenyans

Last month, I traveled to Kenya to attend the wedding of Jeannette and Jeff, a couple of dear friends from Paris.

Before and after the occasion, I was able to explore parts of Nairobi and venture into the outskirts of the city, where I got more up close and personal with nature.  It was splendid but all too brief!

The following are a few souvenirs from the trip.

Feed (and kiss!) Stacy at the Giraffe Centre (Lang'ata, Nairobi)

Carnivore, ranked one of the world's 50 best restaurants (Lang'ata, Nairobi)

Lunch: pilau, sukuma wiki, kachumbari, chapati, ugali, and some tasty fish

Painting of the Big Five + giraffe at the Great Rift Valley viewpoint

View from Mount Longonot
