2010 Trip - 4th September

Today we spent much of the day a Jomo Kenyatta airport in Nairobi. We expected heavy traffic like we have seen for the last few days but we made the drive in record time. At least we were not late for our flight!
We travelled to Mombasa on the coast and were met at the airport by the brother of a lady the Linda works with at Youthworks. He has arranged our accommodation at the Mombasa Club and has also arranged a driver to show us around. Although the locals say that it is cold, it is about 28C. The Mombasa Club is a private "Members Only" club that was established in 1897 by the British. It really does look the part with high ceilings beautiful timber stairs and period furniture. It is just like I have seen in movies - "clubs" in India and Singapore.
We even have to "dress" for dinner.
