My World Tour - Malindi Beach, Kenya
Back to Home Page Kenya Main Page
This is where Julia and Bruce shift gears from 5 months of go, go, go and end up in L-A-Z-Y. We hooked up with our Canadian (Canook) friends, Jenni and Devin, a great couple wacky enough to be on a 14 month world tour, very similar to our own. We met them in Luxor, Egypt a month earlier and met again after our Kenyan safari. They picked us up at the Mombassa train station. Then we were on route to enjoy a 5 hour bus ride in 95 degree heat, a few chickens on board, and 2 bus breakdowns. They also became part of our month long journey down the Kenyan &Tanzanian coast lines and to the island of Zanzibar for more Wizard, laziness and a few adventures on the sea.
We stayed 4 or 5 days (time flies when you are a lazy slug on the beach) in Malindi, mainly playing cards or cooking and eating food. These two introduced us to a card game, Wizard, that is like pure crack cocaine, very addictive and such a rush when you get 4 wizards! We found this Italian condo resort after 2 hours of riding around town in a cab looking at all the hotels & guesthouses listed in Lonely Planet. We think the $ 5 US dollars a night per person for this sweet set up was well worth it.
This is what $ 5 US Dollars a night gets you in Malindi. It sure beats that rat nest of a dive in Cairo, where we had a dozen mosquito bites at night, and a disgusting bathroom.

He was carrying 6 travel books around for 2 months just to record information to give to you ungrateful web viewers. (send money if you are grateful, ha ha)|
