Kenya | The Sun

This is the first true Kenya post out of God only knows how many. I have so many wonderful memories and thoughts to share with you about this trip. Tonight I am going to start with the beautiful scenery of the place because what comes to mind when you think of Africa? Hot, desert, poverty, disease? Let's just say this place completely flipped my view of Africa upside down. I am not positive what I was expecting when I arrived in Nairobi, but it definitely wasn't the lush, green mountain sides that I saw.

Everything about Kenya was a surprise: the people, the views, the weather, the hearts. I couldn't imagine a better bunch of people to be with for 3 weeks. I truly felt at home. Every morning I would wake up to a foggy morning and within a few beautiful moments the sun would rise through the fog and fill the sky. There is something about the Kenyan sunrise that makes the morning that much better. And the way the sun would shine on the hillside throughout the day was so spectacular. And then, the sunset. I can't even describe the African sunset to you. This is something you have to see for yourself.

Also, shameless self promotion coming up: You can buy prints of my Kenya/other travel photos here. It would be a great support if you want to purchase one or a few :) 15% of all profits will go to Children of Promis, the organization that I helped with in Kenya. Thanks! xxx
