Nairobi to Arusha

The DRIVE!

sunny

We made it!

After an INSANE line in the Nairobi airport to get our visas (we stood in a line for over an hour, then once at the front of the line, we were told the guy was out of transit visas and we would have to stand in another line. All he had to do was get up and walk to the other counter and get a new booklet! Grrr, after a near break down, we were able to be fast tract instead of starting in a new line up)
The road from Nairobi to Arusha is an adventure in itself. After two 9+ hour flights and a day in London, the kids didn't get much out of the drive.

Our first night (of three) was at the Moivaro Coffee Plantation. The drive getting to this lodge was always entertaining. We were all shocked that what we were driving down was actually a road! I am glad we never met with on coming traffic.

I got lost more then once trying to find my way back to my cottage at night.

The kids were glad to see a pool after that long drive.

Dinner was good, sadly it was the same two dishes for the next two nights, so it did get tiresome to eat the same thing.
