Day: November 27, 2013
Start of the day at Treetops.
After a leisurely breakfast we were driven back to Outspan, getting a good view of Mount Kenya on the way.
We took tea and coffee on the terrace, waiting to meet the manager ( a friend of Joe’s)
We explored the flowers in the gardens.

Sadly, the manager could not get away to see us and we had to hit the road. We had an easy and scenic drive through Nanyuki (crossing back into the North) around the west and north of Mount Kenya (lost in clouds). Not far before the road splits to Isiolo and Meru we stopped for lunch, watching a small plane spraying the crops.
Then the clouds descended and enveloped us/
And then on to Meru through pouring rain. We eventually found a hotel that seemed OK and checked in, and crossed the road to the museum. This had interesting information on the Meru people, local geography, and local animals.

We then walked to Nakumatt -and the heavens opened.
An umbrella – on a motorbike? (A previous motorbike had 5 people and an umbrella!)
