Day 12 – Lake Elementaita to Gilgil

With the trouble of my leg, I wanted to get a few kilometres off on my way to Naivasha, so I rose early to run 14 km to Gilgil before taking a bus back to the lodge. Francesca made some cracking pancakes before I shower and got myself ready for an interview with a journalist @logocreativescom who had heard about my story!!!! It was relaxed and I explained about some of the stories I encountered along the way through Kenya to Elementaita. After that we went for lunch at this bbq shack in Gilgil and ate more meat then one could possibly handle as you can see!! You know it’s fresh when you see chickens running around!

After lunch, we drove into Soy Sambu as I said I would walk some friends dogs after seeing them and realising that they have already been walked that day we headed to the conservation area briefly to see what game was about. A few here and there but watching the sun go down over the lake was stunning. Francesca was so great because they have supper so late she very kindly made me an early supper before I said my goodbyes to everyone. Wasn’t going to make them get up at 6.30 just to say bye!!! Plan for tomorrow is to get to Naivasha and climb the hills till the late afternoon as the day after is 55km to Limuru town.
