Hello 3 Peaks 2010 Blog Readers:
We love all your comments, support and good energy. We had a most amazing day yesterday. We visited a giraffe center and bead workshop which employees local people and gives them a fair chance to make an honest living. It was amazing to see the beadmakers creativity, art and skill. We are all getting used to each other and travel around Nairobi. The traffic here is bad, and while waiting in lines of traffic locals sell anything from fruit, to maps of Africa (The kind you would hang in front of a chalk board at school) to Ninja Turtle and sail boat pillows, to tuperware. It’s marketing. So… the team departs Nairobi today and we are off to Laikipia. Please follow the blog. Please note our number has changed so if you want to call or text us on the mountain, please dial: +254 724 239 688
