Some of you may of heard of the trauma in Kenya today. Gunmen barged into a major Kenya mall where the upperclass kenyans and ex-pats live. Currently, the report is 20 killed and 50 wounded with unknown amount of hostages. As i write this, i believe the situation is still ongoing, with the army coming in. It is believed that the somali Al Shabarb is responsable. I thought it sensible to let you all know that we are now in Mombasa, not in Nairobi and WE ARE SAFE AND WELL. In saying that, the train we were on the other night to get here has just de=railed, but doesnt that just show that things can happen all around you and you wouldnt know it. Including Australia.
So, on a positive note, we are sipping cold drinks in our resort on the beach in Kilifi area of Mombasa. we will be here for a week before heading back to Mombasa town to wait for our car to arrive on the ship. Last night we had a special night for us. We went to a place called Tamarin, which specialise in seafood and had a lovely indian arabic design, with a lovely atmosphere looking over the skyline with lights reflecting in the water. Being at night time, it gave a beautiful ambiance, which let you forget the reality of the rubbish and the muddy mess which lays all round. They even had live gentle music with a female singer who was wonderful. When she sang "love is in the air" she sang it to us, as we were the only ones who were up dancing and enjoying the music. Over all, it was a lovely night, particularly after the harsh life of living in Githurai, which we say is not 'living' but existing. No wonder Suzy was crying when we left there place again.
Well, i am going to cut short here. Just wanted to assure you all that we are ok. chat again soon. Kwaheri !!!!
