Escape to civilization. Escape to Nairobi.
|Robyn is excited about our new cottage in Nairobi!|
I am in Nairobi with Robyn right now on my first Nairobi trip, and while I certainly miss camp and the Mara, there are many perks to being in Nairobi that people don't always talk about.
Being in Nairobi gives us a break from camp, a reminder that Kenya (and the world!) is so much bigger than our beloved Mara. We get to meet new people, explore the city, and see glimpses of what life is like for urban Kenyans. We also get to return to civilization's amenities for a little while and enjoy treats like buying chocolate...

While nothing compares in our hearts to the beauty and majesty of the Mara and its wildife, it is an exciting change of pace to experience Nairobi and see how people live here. I look forward to seeing our favorite hyenas again soon, but in the meantime I will settle for kisses from some other mammals we met here in Nairobi.
