Trains for Julian
From Helen”s we took a taxi to the Railway Museum, before catching our train “home” to Mombasa.
The museum documents the history of the “lunatic line” from Mombaasa to Uganda, and the other East African routes.

And so, a mere 45 minutes late, we left Nairobi. Dinner was served as we passed through the suburbs and out through Athi River, then we retired for the night (there nothing to see in an African night!)
