    Beautiful photos! I’m trying to decide if for me this would have been worth eating lots of those whole teeny fish and other scary foods you’ve described…..

    I better hold off on my application to WND.

    My roommate in college grew up in Ethiopia and went to school in Kenya. She used to talk about how wonderful Mombasa and its beaches were. Now I see why. Beautiful!

    Barry – so glad for you Christine and Jess. What a wonderful way to end your trip. I’m partial to oceans, lakes, rivers, swimming pools . . . and all that goes with it, so this looks wonderful. Blessings to you for taking risks and leading such a fruitful summer mission.
