Church, Cheese and Chilling in Eldoret
Lucy joined us for an even heartier breakfast than yesterday, then we drove into town to Sacred Heart Cathedral for 10:30 Mass.
The hearty breakfast was necessary, as Mass started late and lasted well over 2 hours. The cathedral is large and full of people.
A stunning tree in the cathedral garden.

From church we searched and found the famous creamery – and a cheesy photo!
Milk here still arrives in churns
And is manually poured into the tanks
As we stood outside the creamery eating Ice Cream, a big bird few low overhead.
From there, via Naiva’s supermarket, to Poa Place (“Cool Place”) which has a number of facilities, including a museum / animal park. The starlings were lying on the grass roofs of the huts.

Gourds used to ferment milk to make mursik (like yoghurt with herbs). Lucy’s description doesn’t make one want to try it!
A cluster of huts
The animals include tortoises
Small antelope (duijker)
Lucy is not a great fan of snakes!

Then a picnic in the garden, a little stroll, and back to the hotel for chai and dinner.
